Title

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy and resection of advanced synchronous liver metastases before treatment of the colorectal primary

Authors
Published in British Journal of Surgery. 2006, vol. 93, no. 7, p. 872-8
Abstract In many patients with advanced synchronous liver metastases from colorectal tumours, the metastases progress during treatment of the primary, precluding curative treatment. The authors have investigated a management strategy that involves high-impact chemotherapy first, resection of liver metastases second and finally removal of the primary tumour in patients with adverse prognostic factors.
