Hepatocellular carcinoma recurrence and patient survival curves for 206 surviving patients after application of the Asan Medical Center criteria based on explant pathology. (A) Hepatocellular carcinoma recurrence curves showed 1‐year, 3‐year, and 5‐year recurrence rates of 5.8%, 13%, and 15%, respectively, within the criteria and 43.3%, 73.6%, and 73.6%, respectively, beyond the criteria (p<0.001). (B) The overall patient survival curves showed 1-year, 3‐year, and 5‐year survival rates of 94.3%, 87.5%, and 81.6%, respectively, within the criteria and 71.9%, 37.2%, and 20.7%, respectively, beyond the criteria (p<0.001) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Disease-free and overall survival comparison based on the Milan criteria and Catholic Medical Center (CMC) criteria. (A) Disease-free survival. (B) Overall patient survival .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Disease-free survival curves according to the Samsung Medical Center (SMC) criteria based on (A) radiological and (B) pathological findings .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Overall and disease-free survival rates according to the National Cancer Center Korea (NCCK) criteria with preoperative imaging findings (A) and explant pathology (B) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|The cumulative risk of tumor recurrence according to the Milan criteria (MC) and the model to predict tumor recurrence after living donor liver transplantation (MoRAL) score using a cut off of 314.8. The risk of recurrence decreased in the following order: beyond MC/high MoRAL score >within MC/high MoRAL score >beyond MC/low MoRAL >within MC/low MoRAL score (p<0.001). The patients within MC with high MoRAL score experienced higher recurrence than the patients beyond MC with low MoRAL score (hazard ratio=2.56, p=0.035) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Overall survival and disease-free survival according to the A-P 200 criteria. (A) The 3-year overall survival rates for patients who were within and patients who exceeded the A-P 200 criteria were 89.2% and 90.3%, respectively (p=0.92). (B) The 3-year disease-free survival rates for the patients who were within and patients who exceeded the A-P 200 criteria were 90.0% and 43.6%, respectively (p<0.001) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Recurrence‐free survival after liver transplantation (LT) in subgroups with far advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. (A) Comparison of tumor markers in only patients with tumor size ≥10 cm. (B) Comparison of tumor markers in only patients with 10 or more tumors. (C) Comparison of tumor markers in only patients with macrovascular invasion. (D) Comparison of macrovascular invasion for all patients with far advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. There were significant differences between the low‐risk (AFP+PIVKA‐II ≤300) and high‐risk (AFP+PIVKA‐II>300) patients in all subgroups. The presence of macrovascular invasion was not as effective as the sum of AFP+PIVKA‐II to predict tumor recurrence in the far advanced group .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Kaplan-Meier survival curves according to each patient selection criteria. In comparison with other criteria (A–E), the composite criteria exhibited the highest predictive value for recurrence-free survival (RFS) (F) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Kaplan‐Meier probability of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence within 5 years for living donor liver transplant recipients in the development and validation groups .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Tumor recurrence and patient survival according to the pretransplant ADV scores in the treatment-naïve (TN) and pretransplant-treated (PT) groups. (A) Tumor recurrence (left) and overall patient survival (right) curves according to the pretransplant ADV scores in the TN group.

(A) Recurrence‐free survival was significantly decreased with an increasing number of risk factors (p<0.001) except between the subgroups with 1 and 2 risk factors (not significant). (B) The overall survival did not differ between subgroups with 1, 2 or 3 risk factors; however, the survival for all these subgroups was significantly decreased in comparison to the survival of the subgroup with no risk factors (p<0.001) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Posttransplant disease-free survival (DFS) curves according to (A) the duration of disease-free survival period after hepatectomy and (B) the interval between hepatectomy and living donor liver transplantation .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) in 125 patients who underwent salvage living donor liver transplantation. The patients were also stratified by 1log intervals of pretransplant ADV scores (A, B) and by pretransplant ADV score cutoffs of 4.0 log and 6.0 log (C, D) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Disease-free survival (DFS) in (A, B) 86 patients within the Milan criteria (C, D) and in 39 patients beyond the Milan criteria stratified according to 1log intervals of explant ADV scores (A, C) and by two explant ADV score cutoffs of 4.0 log and 6.0 log (B, D) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Cumulative tumor recurrence rates in patients with incidentally diagnosed hepatocellular carcinoma (iHCC) and untreated small pretransplant known hepatocellular carcinoma (pkHCC) ≤2.0 cm in size (p=0.27) .|@|~(^,^)~|@|Comparison of tumor recurrence and patient survival curves after hepatic resection (HR) and liver transplantation (LT).
