Management of colorectal liver metastases in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We have taken into consideration papers published in the last 10 years on the treatment of patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis and hepatic metastasis from colorectal cancer and the pre-operative prognostic factors needed to consider these subjects eligible for surgical treatment. Peritoneal carcinomatosis should not be considered an absolute contraindication to hepatic resection if it is possible to perform a complete resection of all peritoneal and liver disease.
