Patient survival related to the extent of liver metastases from primary colorectal cancer
Biliary Tract Neoplasms
A group of 113 patients with liver metastases from primary large bowel cancer were studied and survival was related to the extent of liver involvement with tumor. Similar findings were recorded in a continuing prospective clinical study of patients with large bowel cancer. Patients with solitary or localised liver metastases have a relatively longer survival time than patients with extensive liver involvement with tumor. These results are the basis of a control group for comparison with various forms of treatment for liver metastases.
