Answer

In case of end-stage liver disease that is refractory to all methods of medical treatment, transferring the patient to a facility experienced in liver transplantation is preferable.

When the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma is being considered or if the diagnosis is confirmed, transfer the patient to a cancer institution.
