The association between the metabolic effects of hepatic steatosis as a part of postoperative outcomes of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has rarely been studied. This study aimed to assess the relationship between metabolic dysfunction-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) and patients' prognoses following curative resection of HBV-related HCC. Patients who underwent surgical resection for HBV-related HCC between 2009 and 2015 were recruited. The study endpoints were postoperative hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence and all-cause mortality. Adjusted hazard ratios (aHRs) for the outcomes were estimated using multivariate Cox regression models. The mean age of the 2032 enrolled patients was 55.0 years, and 77.9% were men. During follow-up (median 5.3 years), HCC recurrence and all-cause mortality occurred in 954 (47.0%) and 422 (20.8%) patients, respectively. HCC recurrence and all-cause mortality were significantly associated with MAFLD, with aHRs of 1.22 (p = 0.003) and 1.44 (p < 0.001), respectively. Propensity score matching and inverse probability treatment weighting analyses confirmed similar results (p < 0.05). MAFLD was associated with significantly poor prognoses in terms of HCC recurrence and all-cause mortality following surgical resection of HBV-related HCC. Further studies are needed to develop an effective preventive strategy through the management of metabolic health.
