Incidence of liver cancer ranks 6th among all cancers
in the world, and its mortality rate ranks 3rd.

Liver cancer is a common cancer, and its incidence ranks the sixth among all cancers in the world. There are about 626,000 people who are diagnosed with liver cancer every year. Its mortality rate ranks the third; and in the world, the number of people who die of liver cancer reaches 589,000. Therefore, until now, liver cancer is the serious disease which is detrimental to people’s health. The functions of liver include synthesis, decomposition and metabolism. The food we eat is mainly decomposed by the liver and stored in the liver. If no food to eat, the homeostasis of our internal environment is maintained by liver.

Harm of Liver Cancer

Liver cancer usually brings a relatively big wound, which makes patients feel painful. Development of liver cancer may be not obvious, and liver cancer has a long period of incubation. But its fast development, including malignant tumor, has a high risk of death.

Clinical symptoms of liver cancer include loss of appetite, loss of weight, increase in the abdomen girth, fever and so on. There are other symptoms, such as jaundice, nausea and vomiting. If you want to know more, please contact us.

Liver cancer, especially the malignant tumor, will cause death without timely treatment.

Development of Liver Cancer

1. Viruses invade the liver and then breed in the liver, which causes infection. In this way, after the incubation, the inflamed liver is viral hepatitis. In accordance with the routes of infection, there are two ways of transmission of viral hepatitis. The first one is through mouth infection, and the other one is through blood and body fluids. If blood transfusions, injections and other medical care without clean disinfection, the liver infection will arise.

2. Viral hepatitis is divided into hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C. But hepatitis B has the closest relationship with liver cancer.
3. Chronic hepatitis will cause liver fibrosis and gradual hardening because of repeated liver inflammation and repair process. Therefore, about two or three decades later, it will develop into liver cirrhosis; and among them, 5% will become liver cancer as a complication.
4. Liver cirrhosis is divided into: ①alcoholic cirrhosis caused by excessive alcoholic; ②posthepatitic cirrhosis, which causes liver cirrhosis on the basis of viral hepatitis; ③ adiposis hepatica induced cirrhosis, which the fatty liver after hepatitis is caused by the excessive ingestion and less exercise, combined that the liver function has not completely restored and then fat is easily restored in liver. Long-term accumulation of fat in the liver cells will cause the swelling, degeneration and necrosis of liver. Once liver has fibroplasias, the liver cirrhosis will arise.
5. According to Health Bureau data, among cancer lesion produced by liver cells, 85% is caused by viral hepatitis and then evolves into liver cirrhosis, finally liver cancer; 15% directly evolves into liver cancer without the process of liver cirrhosis.
6. Symptoms of early liver cancer are easily mistaken as that of liver hepatitis and liver cirrhosis therefore liver cancer is not easy to be found. Without timely treatment, early liver cancer will develop into advanced liver cancer, which severely impairs people’s health.

Minimally Invasive Treatment for Liver Cancer
New technologies of
treatment for
liver cancer
Cryotherapy :
little trauma, little bleeding and less complications

Ar-He knife, also named cryotherapy, destroys tumor cells through the local cryotherapy method. The liver tissue will not be excised excessively by Ar-He knife. Therefore, cryotherapy is a good choice for cancer patients who cannot bear liver resection because cryotherapy has little trauma, little bleeding and less complications. Through Ar-He knife, there are only several millimeters of open wounds in operation, which puts frozen needle point into the tumor cells by utilizing the high and low temperature to kill the tumor tissues in liver. Indeed, percutaneous cryoablation therapy is an effective and safe minimally invasive treatment. And as the diameter of tumor cells is more than 5cm, patient can receive cryotherapy repeatedly. Combined therapies, such as interventional therapy and particle knife therapy, can make the effect better. [Know more about cryotherapy, please contact us.]


Surgical resection: a technology with a high rate of recuurence and metastasis

As the traditional therapy, surgical resection causes larger damage, which has a high risk and leaves a relatively large scar. Meanwhile, the proloferation of cancer cells can not be resolved, including metastasis and recurrence after operation.

treatment for
liver cancer
Interventional therapy: 1-2 millimeter incision,
killing cancer cells accurately

In interventional embolization, paracentesis can be performed with 1-2 millimeter incision. And then the special tube is introduced into the feeding arteries of liver cancer tissues through arteries; finally the anti-tumor medicine is put into through tube. In this way, the medicine is put into the tumor directly, which avoids flowing into all parts of body along with venous blood. Such perfusion makes drug concentration increase 2-8 times, which kills cancer cells effectively and minimizes the side effects of drug. At the same time, embolotherapy is to cut the tumor blood vessels that the tumor starves out of blood supply. Interventional therapy has the advantages of specific target, no drug resistance, less side effects. [Know more about interventional therapy, please contact us.]


Conventional chemotherapy: obvious side effects

Conventional chemotherapy will cause nausea, tiredness, hair loss, palpitations and fever...... Besides, chemo-drugs bear toxic side effects and result in damage to blood and lymph node cells of immune defense system and worsen immune system while kill tumor cells.

Newest Technologies against Liver Cancer
New Breakthrough of Minimally Invasive Treatment for Liver Cancer
Before minimally invasive treatment:

1.Make the detailed general check-up for the patient, accurately determine the location, size and stage of patient’s tumor, and then determine whether the tumor has metastasis and other associated diseases.
On the basis of test result and patient’s condition, MTD group will research and analyze carefully from the multidisciplinary direction, and then make treatment plan seriously. The MTD group utilizes complementary advantages of minimally invasive technologies to get the maximum treatment effect for patient and reduce the side effect to a minimum. Multidisciplinary treatment can avoid the one-sidedness of the single discipline treatment, because relying on the single treatment is difficult to achieve the expected effect.

During minimally invasive treatment:

1.The minimally invasive treatment usually lasts about one hour. Depending on the situation, the patient may be received minimally invasive treatment in the case of semi-anesthesia with clear thinking, so that he/she can talk with the doctor, accompanied by an interpreter.
2.Interventional therapy, particles therapy and cryotherapy are minimally invasive treatments, because the surgical wounds of all of them is just about 2mm. Without large area of surgical wounds and serious bleeding, patient can walk within 48 hours after minimally invasive treatment because of little trauma and fast recovery. Therefore, the pain after minimally invasive treatment is little and the side effects are mild.

After minimally invasive treatment:

1.According to the situation of operation, regularly monitoring temperature, pulse, respiration and blood pressure will be done. Besides, doctors will check whether the patient feel painful and uncomfortable or not; and nurses will give patient attentive care.
2.Monitoring patient’s tumor and physical condition, doctors and nurses adjust the care program on the basis of specific situation.
3.Determining the subsequent visit time for discharged patients, doctors will provide the necessary guidance of services, nutrition, rehabilitation and the precautions in living or working.
