Adjuvant chemotherapy and follow-up

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Even though there are no definitive data supporting the use of adjuvant chemotherapy after liver resection for initially resectable hepatic colorectal metastases, the rationale for this approach seems evident. The activity of chemotherapy in metastatic disease is well known, and it is broadly accepted that, at least theoretically, patients with micrometastatic disease after radical surgery will benefit from systemic chemotherapy, as will patients undergoing surgery for stage III colon cancer.
