Authors report their clinical experience concerning liver metastases from colorectal cancer. 21 (26%) out of 87 patients observed between 1977 and 1988, underwent hepatic resection. In this group the recorded operative mortality was 4.7% and the postoperative follow-up showed a survival rate of 27% five years after hepatic surgery. Hepatic resection should be considered as the most effective treatment for liver metastases from large bowel cancer. Unfortunately only few patients are suitable for surgery. Alternative treatments for unresectable hepatic recurrences of colorectal cancer still remain a most major problem.
