6673 RFA of HCC Primary study objective: To estimate the proportion of patients undergoing solitary or repetitive percutaneous RFA treatment sessions whose livers have no identifiable tumor by CT scan at 18 months following initiation of therapy
6673 RFA of HCC Some secondary study objectives: –Aim: Effects of tumor size, local recurrence, remote occurrence, whether or not repeated RFA, etc. on success rate at 18-month Notations: –Local intrahepatic tumor: tumor was treated but seen again at the ablated site – Remote intrehepatic tumor: new tumor was seen but remote from the ablated site(s).
6673 RFA of HCC Enrollment Criteria –Cirrhosis –MELD Score < 15 –HCC = 1-3 tumors < 3cm, or 1 tumor > 3 and < 5cm –No previous treatment for HCC
6673 RFA of HCC Treatment –Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation Ablations permitted from enrollment through 15th month Single vendor RFA unit (Covidien) Standardized ablation protocol
6673 RFA of HCC Follow-up –3 phase CT Prior to treatment Immediately after ablation Every 3-months through 18 months post ablation
6673 RFA of HCC Central review –To determine the presence/absence of tumor –Scans were divide into two equal batches and were reviewed by one of the two central readers. –Discrepancy from the local read were adjudicated by the other central reader.
6673 RFA of HCC Results –45 Eligible patients enrolled 29 men, 16 women Average age 61 (range, 40 to 81) –Number of tumors 1 = 39 2 = 4 3 = 2
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Patient status 33 dropped out prior to completion 12 patients completed study
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Patient status 33 dropped out prior to completion –15 were transplanted –5 died –5 withdrew from the study –7 started nonprotocol treatment –1 developed an extrahepatic tumor
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Patient status 15 were transplanted –4 had tumor on last CT »2 had a local tumor »2 had a remote tumor –11 had no tumor
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Patient status 5 patients died –2 had tumor on last CT and was the cause of death for 2 of those –3 had no tumor 7 patients had non-protocol treatment –7 had tumor on last CT –0 had no tumor
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Patient status 12 patients completed study –8 = 1 ablation –2 = 2 ablations –2= 3 ablations
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Patient status 12 patients completed study –Tumor status on 18 month CT »10 = no tumor at treated sites (83%) »8 = tumor free (67%) »2 = local intrahepatic tumor (17%) »4 = remote intrahepatic tumor (33% )
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Aim: control disease at 18 months Out of 45 patients, 8 patients who completed study without tumor –success rate = 8/45 (18%) (95% Exact CI: 0.08, 0.32) Only 12 patients who made it to 18 months –success rate = 8/12 (67%) (95% Exact CI: 0.35, 0.90)
6673 RFA of HCC Results –Aim: control disease at 18 months or successful bridge to transplant Including the previous 8 tumor-free patients at 18 months plus 15 patients who made it to transplant –success rate = 23/45(51%) (95% Exact CI: 36%, 66%)
