Comprehensive treatment of liver cancer
Comprehensive treatment of liver cancer, is included surgical resection, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biological therapy, interventional therapy, including comprehensive treatment. In addition to radical resection may cure liver cancer, but no other specific treatment. But studies show that while the search for new methods, such as the old method of treatment can properly integrated applications can be received 1 + 1> 2 results. If the use of radiotherapy and chemotherapy liver cancer , it is desirable with the use of Chinese herbs and immune therapy to improve immune function. Comprehensive treatment is a trend. Growing number of scholars claim TACE and percutaneous ethanol injection (PEl) combination for the treatment of unresectable liver cancer. Comparison of TACE + PEl treatment of 86 cases of liver cancer 3.1_8.0 cm, 5-year survival rate was 47%. There are also reports 83 cases of hepatocellular carcinoma larger than 3 cm in the treatment of TACE ten PEl 5-year survival was 35%, which is ChildA and 3_5 cm tumor were 75%. 5-year survival rate reported in China triple therapy (hepatic artery hepatic artery ligation HAL HAl ten ten radiotherapy RT / radioimmunotherapy RAlT / freezing treatment) were 33.5%; two joint treatment (HAL + HAl, or HAL / HAl Ten RT / freezing treatment) were 17.9%; a single treatment (HAL or HAl or freezing treatment) were 16.7%. The second phase of the order and the removal rate of the relevant group were 34.8%, 13.1% and 1.6%.
Comprehensive treatment of liver cancer, in addition to comprehensive application of the same time, there are the same sequential therapy. If the two specimens were found, despite the adoption of the comprehensive treatment of various forms, including the relatively new guide treatment, most still visible residual cancer surgical specimens. To this end, when the tumor shrink, the sequential resection is an important means to eradicate residual cancer. On the other hand, repeated application of the same treatment, not only the amount of change, and sometimes qualitative change. Such as hepatic artery embolization may be achieved in some cases, complete tumor necrosis. Although a trend of comprehensive treatment, but no fixed pattern, in principle, should enable the various therapies complement each other, or each of the different links, or make up the other side effects such therapy, according to the different circumstances of different patients and flexibility to to maximize tumor destruction, but also to maximize the preservation body (especially liver function, immune function and hematopoietic function.) Attack on the overall design should also pay attention to both complement both methods focus on eradication of tumors (such as surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, treatment-oriented, etc.), and pay attention to support and mobilize the body's resistance to disease approaches (such as biological treatment, not the high promoter nutrition, medicine righting, etc.).
