Surgery is the gold standard treatment of colorectal liver metastases. Patients management had a dramatic evolution during the past years: more accurate diagnostic tools and more effective chemotherapy regimens have been introduced and surgical indications have been widely broadened. A multidisciplinary treatment is now mandatory, involving oncologists, radiologists an gastroenterologists. However, many topics are still debated. In the present book all aspects of surgical treatment of colorectal liver metastases are analyzed based on a systematic, updated analysis of the literature. Aim of this book is to provide surgeons, oncologists and radiologists a clear overview of the state-of-the-art of treatment of colorectal liver metastases
