There is a striking sex difference in the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma, with a strong predominance for men; however, the impact of sex on the incidence of recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma remains controversial. This study aimed to assess sex differences in the risks of recurrence and mortality for patients treated with curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma.
