Abstract

Surgical resection remains one of the major curative treatment options available to patients with colorectal liver metastases. Surgery and chemotherapy form the backbone of the treatment in patients with colorectal liver metastases. With more effective chemotherapy regimens being available, the optimal timing and sequencing of treatments are important. A multidisciplinary approach with the involvement of medical oncologists and surgical oncologists from the beginning is crucial. Identification of the clinical and molecular prognostic factors may help personalize the treatment approaches for these patients. This article provides an overview of the surgical management of colorectal liver metastases.
