Abstract

Hepatic resection of colorectal liver metastases (CLM) is now regarded the standard of care. Evaluation of true long-term survivors will demonstrate the curative potential of this therapy with cure being defined as actual 10-year survival versus a satisfactory oncological outcome of 5-year survival. Limited data exists on outcomes of patients beyond 5 years. Studying the rates of cure and predictive factors for cure are essential to define the true benefit of this therapy.
