Abstract

Over the past 20 years, data have been presented indicating surgical resection as the primary treatment for isolated hepatic metastases from colorectal carcinoma. In most series reporting long-term follow-up (i.e., > 5 years), a salvage rate of approximately 25% is reported for completely resectable lesions numbering less than four [1–16]. As this therapy has gained acceptance, the question of appropriate follow-up and repeat resections for recurrent metastatic cancer of the liver has become relevant. We present our own experience with hepatic re-resection as well as an overview of those few anecdotal case reports to be found in the literature.
