New technique to treat liver cancer patients
(04-14 18:19)

Surgeons at Queen Mary Hospital have introduced new modifications to a German technique for treating liver cancer that they say can allow around a fifth of previously "inoperable" cases to undergo potentially life-saving surgery.
Apart from that, the changes introduced have significantly improved the success rate of operations.
All six patients treated using the new method since October have recovered without suffering any complications. This compares with the international complication rate of 30-percent. --RTHK
