Abstract:

It is estimated that colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer mortality in the Europe. The liver is a common site for metastatic spread in patients with colorectal carcinoma. At the time of diagnosis of colorectal cancer, about 20% to 25% of the patients are found to have synchronous liver metastases and an average of 50% of all patients will develop metachronous liver metastases in the course of their disease. The only curative therapy of colorectal liver metastases is surgical resection with reported 5 year survival rates in 25% to 50% of cases. Depending on the number of metastases, the location, the volume, the extrahepatic spread, and the overall condition of the patient, complete resection is possible in only 25% of all cases and is associated with a perioperative mortality of 3% to 5% and a morbidity of 20% to 40%. If resection is not feasible, a large number of systemic or local palliative treatment options are available.

KEY WORDS: COLORECTAL LIVER METASTASES; SURGICAL RESECTION, METASTASECTOMY
