MetResect Cases by General Category

The most important question initially to be asked of colorectal disease metastatic to the liver at the time of its discovery is whether it is resectable. This question hinges on whether the metastatic disease is restricted to the liver, and whether it is initially resectable or might be converted to a resectable state. Another initial parameter that in a practical way often influences the therapeutic approach is whether the disease is discovered at the time of the discovery of the primary disease (is synchronous) or is discovered as recurrent metastatic disease at some later time in the clinical course (is metachronous).

Using this page you can select cases by the general category and by who commented on them.

Cases were grouped in five general categories. Click Group Number to go to the grouped cases and further explore them.

  • Group 1: Metachronous Arguably Resectable Liver-Only Disease at Presentation (Cases 1-12)
  • Group 2: Metachronous Potentially Convertible Liver-Only Disease at Presentation (Cases 13-25)
  • Group 3: Synchronous and Arguably Initially Resectable Liver Disease (Cases 26-34)
  • Group 4: Synchronous and Potentially Convertible Liver Disease (Cases 35-44)
  • Group 5: Liver Metastases with Simultaneous Extrahepatic Disease (Lung or Nodes) (Cases 45-51)
