Abstract

Technically resectable recurrent colorectal hepatic metastases should be resected the same as the first metastases. Characteristics of the primary metastasis as well as parameters of the hepatic recurrence are shown to influence the prognosis of patients after resection of recurrent liver metastases. Repeat resection of colorectal liver metastases allows for improved survival in patients even after two previous liver operations.
