Figure 7 Updated Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer staging system and treatment strategy, 2011[10]. The BCLC algorithm classifies HCC into five stages-based on the extent of disease, Child-Pugh score, and ECOG performance status-that enables prognostication and informs allocation of first-line treatment. BCLC: Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (group); HCC: Hepatocellular carcinoma; PST: Performance status test; TACE: Transarterial chemoembolization; RF: Radiofrequency; PEI: Percutaneous ethanol infusion; CLT: Cadaveric liver transplant; LDLT: Living donor liver transplant.
