Surgery is the gold standard treatment of colorectal liver metastases. Patient management has undergone dramatic changes in recent years: more accurate diagnostic tools and more effective chemotherapy regimens have been introduced and surgical indications have been widely broadened. A multidisciplinary approach to treatment is now mandatory, involving oncologists, radiologists and gastroenterologists. However, many topics are still debated. This book analyzes all aspects of the surgical treatment of colorectal liver metastases based on a systematic, updated review of the literature. The aim of this volume is to provide surgeons, oncologists and radiologists with a clear overview of the state-of-the-art of treatment of colorectal liver metastases.
