Liver surgery is considered a curative treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) but the importance of resection margin width remains controversial. The aim of this study is to clarify the role of 5-10 mm surgical margin width on post-operative recurrence and overall survival after resection.

Does the margin width influence recurrence rate in liver surgery for hepatocellular carcinoma smaller than 5 cm?
