Answer

In patients with decompensated liver disease, liver transplantation offers the potential for a long-term cure in patients with limited tumor burden. Alternative treatments, including local ablative therapy, TACE, and transarterial brachytherapy, can be considered in patients who are not candidates for curative procedures.
