About this book

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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The aim is to provide a comprehensive, evidence-based guide to the role of surgery in the multidisciplinary treatment of colorectal liver metastases. … It addresses a clinically important disease process and will be of great benefit to all surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, and other medical practitioners who care for patients with colorectal liver metastases. … Finally, the images, figures, and tables are all of the highest quality and further enhance what is a great resource.” (Zoe Stewart, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2011)
