abstract

  • Hepatectomy for CRLM among well-selected octogenarians is reasonable with cancer related survival outcomes similar to those observed in younger patients. However, it is associated with clinically significant morbidity/mortality and continued efforts directed at optimizing perioperative care are necessary to improve early outcomes among octogenarians.
