Abstract

Kidney cancer is the ninth most frequent cause of malignant tumors in developed countries. Liver metastases from kidney cancer are present in 20.3 % of metastatic kidney cancers. In patient with metastatic kidney cancer, staging is a fundamental step to determine both prognosis and therapeutical approach. Options for treatment of liver metastases from renal cancer include surgery, ablative therapies, and chemotherapy. Indications vary depending on the stage of the disease, presence of extrahepatic metastases, and general status of patients.
