AIMS Long-term survival has been demonstrated for patients with irresectable colorectal liver metastases who are brought to resection by chemotherapy. However, it remains unclear whether improved long-term outcome seen with modern therapies translates to increased rates of secondary resection and whether response rates correlate with rates of secondary liver resection. METHODS A systematic review of literature published between January 1998 and September 2013 was performed. Phase II/III… CONTINUE READING
