abstract

  • SPN are common among patients undergoing resection of colorectal cancer liver metastases and approximately one-third of these will prove to be metastatic disease. Presence of limited preoperative SPN might be associated with shorter PFS after hepatectomy, but does not substantially impact 3-year DSS, and should not necessarily preclude resection of hepatic metastases.
