ALLPS VERSUS PVO Randomized Controlled Trial (ALPPS)
Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:22nd Jan 2013
This randomized phase II trial compares how well associating liver partition with portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) or portal vein occlusion (PVO) works in treating patients with liver cancer. Both treatments are types of 2-stage hepatectomies for removing liver cancer. ALPPS may be more effective than PVO in patients whose disease would traditionally be considered inoperable.
