Description Locoregional therapies (LRT) play an important role in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), with the aim of increasing overall survival while preserving liver function. Different forms of LRT are available and choosing which one is best will depend on technical aspects, liver morphology, tumor biology, and patient’s symptoms. The purpose of this review article is to provide an overview of the current evidence regarding the use of percutaneous ablation, transarterial chemoembolization and transarterial radioembolization for the curative or palliative treatment of HCC. Special situations are also reviewed, including the combined use of systemic therapy with LRT; indications and techniques for bridging to transplant and downstaging; and the use of LRT to treat patients with HCC and macrovascular invasion.
