Hepatic resection for colorectal metastasis; time to challenge the accepted doctrine

Sharpe J., Hamady Z. Z. R., Lodge J. P. A.


PDF  


The selection of patients for resection of colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) is based around a set of established rules and principles, some of which date back to and have changed little since the mid 1980's. In this paper the authors challenge this accepted doctrine and describe the criteria used for selection of patients for surgery in their own centre, criteria which permit the inclusion of many more patients for potentially curative surgery. They go on to describe methods used to increase resectability and discuss their own results achieved for the resection of CRLM.
