Introduction: Liver transplantation (LT) is increasing treatment option for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in East Asia. Over-immunosuppression is risk factor for oncologic outcome after transplantation and the recurrent HCC is the major cause of graft failure and patient death. But, there are few report comparing the recurrence of HCC after ABO-incompatible (ABOi) LT and ABO-compatible (ABOc) LT. We analyzed post-transplantation recurrence and overall survival of HCC after ABOi and ABOc liver transplantation. Methods:A total 119 recipients with HCC who underwent liver transplantation between January 2010 and December 2015 in Severance hospital were retrospectively reviewed. Among 119 patients, 24 patients underwent ABOi LT. We compared the characteristics and recurrence free survival of HCC after ABOi and ABOc liver LT. The results: There was no significant difference of characteristics between ABOc and ABOi LT. Among 119 patients, 22 patients (18.5%) recurrend after LT. 15.8% of patients underwent ABOc LT and 29.2% of patients underwent ABOi LT were recurred. Among 119 patients, 17 patients (14.3%) were dead or experienced graft failure after LT. 13.7% of patients underwent ABOc LT and 16.7% of patients underwent ABOi LT were dead or experienced graft failure. When we compare recurrence free survival rate and overall survival with patients within Milan criteria and above Milan criteria, there were no difference between ABOc and ABOi LT. Conclusion: The HCC recurrence and overall survival of ABOi LT were comparable to those of ABOc LT. ABO-incompatible liver transplantation is safe and feasible for hepatocellular carcinoma patients.
