As reported in MDLinx,researchers assessed how preoperative antiviral treatment (AVT) correlates with the incidences of microvascular invasion (MVI) and posthepatectomy early tumor recurrence in hepatitis B virus (HBV)–related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). They found that an independent risk factor for MVI was high preoperative HBV DNA level. Following partial hepatectomy for HBV-related HCC, reduced incidences of MVI and early tumor recurrence were reported in relation to antiviral treatment administered more than 90 days before surgery.
