Abstract

According to the present results, liver surgery can be performed safely in a specialised centre. The time of occurrence of the metastases (synchronous vs. metachronous) does not seem to have any impact on the early postoperative course as well as on the long-term survival in patients undergoing curative resection of colorectal liver metastases. However, larger studies appear necessary to confirm the results of the present study.
