Abstract

Ultrasound-guided percutaneous alcohol injection of liver metastases or hepatocellular carcinoma represents a well-established alternative to surgery when surgical resection is contraindicated. The aim of this report is to describe the technique of echolaparoscopic-guided alcohol injection of liver metastases in a patient undergoing palliative treatment for adenocarcinoma of the cardia. This procedure provides a more accurate staging of the disease and a safe approach to liver metastases with difficult anatomical location in patients unsuitable for surgical resection.
