Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with underlying Child-Pugh B-7 cirrhosis benefit from management from an experienced, multidisciplinary team. In patients with localized disease who meet criteria for liver transplant, establishing care at a liver transplant center is crucial. For those awaiting transplant, local bridge therapies have emerged as a strategy to maintain priority status and eligibility. Multiple liver-directed therapies exist to provide locoregional tumor control. The careful selection of locoregional therapy is a multidisciplinary endeavor that takes into account patient factors including tumor resectability, underlying liver function, performance status, previous treatment, tumor location/size, and vascular anatomy to determine the optimal management strategy. Technological advances in external beam radiation therapy have allowed stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to emerge in recent years as a versatile and highly effective bridge therapy consisting of typically between 3 and 5 high dose, highly focused, and non-invasive radiation treatments. When treating cirrhotic patients with HCC, preserving liver function is of utmost importance to prevent clinical decline and decompensation. SBRT has been shown to be both safe and effective in carefully selected patients with Child-Pugh B cirrhosis; however, care must be taken to prevent radiation-induced liver disease. This review summarizes the evolving role of SBRT in the treatment of HCC in patients with Child-Pugh B-7 cirrhosis.
