Özet

Objectives: Although hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) screening is accepted as standard care in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) diagnosis, sustained viral response (SVR) has been obtained by treatment and it is not certain what the condition is in the group of patients with advanced fibrosis who are at increased risk for developing HCC before treatment. In this cohort of patients, the practice of HCC was intended to be evaluated in real life conditions.
