Abstract

The liver is a common site for gastrointestinal tumor metastases as it is the first major organ reached by blood draining the portal venous system. With the development of more effective chemotherapeutic agents which may eradicate residual microscopic disease in the liver and help reduce known tumor burden, partial hepatectomy to remove gross metastatic disease will likely become increasingly utilized in the future. This chapter discusses the presentation and clinical factors in liver directed surgical resection.
