Surgical Techniques for Metastatic Hepatic Carcinoma
Hepatic metastasis of colorectal cancer is a critical factor affecting prognosis of colorectal cancer. For about 25 % of patients, hepatic metastasis had occurred when colorectal cancer was confirmed; for 40–50 % of patients, it would occur within 3 years after surgery for colorectal cancer . Surgical therapy is the only means by which radical treatment can be achieved. With the improvement of surgical techniques today, the 5-year survival rate has increased to 45–60 %, from 30 to 35 % in the 1990s .
