Significant survival difference was found across all groups of these staging systems ( P < 0.05) except for the comparison between TNM 7 [sup]th Stage IV versus III ( P = 0.1574), TNM 7 [sup]th Stage IV versus III ( P = 0.5366), Tokyo score 1 versus 0 ( P = 0.3930), Tokyo score 4 versus 3 ( P = 0.5691), Tokyo score 5 versus 4 ( P = 0.0823), CLIP score 3 + 4 versus 2 ( P = 0.9283), Okuda Stage I versus Stage 0 ( P = 0.1107), Okuda Stage II versus Stage I ( P = 0.7077) [Table 2].{Figure 1}{Table 2}
Although some studies showed that BCLC staging system performed poorly in predicting the survival of patients with early HCC after liver resection, [sup][24] our study demonstrated that BCLC staging has a superior discriminable ability for early stage HCC between Stage 0 and Stage A ( P = 0.0195).
