**Figure 9.** **Nomogram for predicting the survival of patients with HCC.** A straight line was drawn up to the axis labeled Points to determine the corresponding points. This process was repeated for each of the remaining axes, drawing a straight line each time to the Points axis. The points received for each predictive variable were added and this number was located on the Total Points axis. A straight line was drawn down from the Total Points to the 1-, 2- and 3-year survival axes to determine the predicted survival probabilities of patients.
