Liver metastases are the major cause of mortality in patients with gastrointestinal carcinomas and other malignant tumors, carrying a poor prognosis and presenting considerable management. Surgical resection remains the only curative therapy for liver metastases up to now. However, only a small percentage of patients are suitable for curative resection due to many factors: multi-centric tumors, extrahepatic metastases, early vascular invasion, and coexisting advanced liver cirrhosis.

In non - surgical cases , regional interventional therapies have led to a major break through in the treatment of unresectable liver metastases , which include transarterial chemoembolization ( TACE ) , radiofrequency ablation ( RFA ) , laser - induced thermotherapy ( LITT ) , cryosurgical ablation ( CSA ) , microwave coagulation therapy ( MCT ) , percutaneous ethanol injection ( PEI ) , and others .
