Background. Liver transplantation is a widely accepted modality in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In our center, patients with HCC limited to the liver without macrovascular invasion are accepted as candidates for living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The aim of this study was to describe the patient characteristics and outcomes at a single institution to analyze the impact of our criteria on the survival of HCC patients.
