Improvements in treatment strategies and a better knowledge of tumor biology have contributed to an increase in the number of patients with colorectal liver metastases (CLM) who are candidate for surgery. These progresses are on going and the introduction of effective systemic therapy agents contributes further to the increase in the resectability of patients with advanced CLM. © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
