Resection is the treatment of choice for almost all hepatic neoplasms. Improvements in operative techniques and perioperative patient management have resulted in low morbidity and mortality. Patients with underlying chronic liver disease in association with hepatic malignancy now can be offered either subsegmental resection or liver transplantation in selected cases. The role of cryosurgery and alcohol injection in patients who are not candidates for resection should become clearer once longer follow-up data are available.
