Abstract

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a complex and heterogeneous disease, often associated with underlying conditions, like cirrhosis or other relevant co-morbidities that worsen the prognosis and make the clinical management more challenging. Current recommendations emphasize the importance of a multidisciplinary approach for the management of HCC patients and stress the crucial role of careful prevention and the management of cirrhosis-associated complications. This article discusses the importance of a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of HCC patients. Current recommendations for the treatment of cirrhotic patients with HCC are also reviewed.
