PURPOSE: To systematically review the safety and efficacy of transarterial drug-eluting beads, irinotecan (DEBIRI) for the treatment of pretreated patients with unresectable colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). METHODS: A systematic search of the current literature was conducted to extract publications reporting on the use of DEBIRI for CRLM. Data on the safety and efficacy was extracted and tabulated. Weighted average values (WAV) were calculated for each variable to provide a single value representing the pooled safety and efficacy data...

BACKGROUND: Insufficient volume of the future liver remnant (FLR) is a major cause of non-resectable disease in patients presenting with primary or metastatic liver tumours. The objective of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combined preoperative portal and hepatic vein embolization (biembolization) before extended right liver resections. METHODS: This retrospective study was performed in a tertiary centre between 2014 and 2015. Combined right portal and hepatic vein embolization (biembolization) was proposed, as an alternative to ALPPS procedure, for all patients with primary or metastatic liver tumour, before right extended hepatectomy...

BACKGROUND: The impact of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) for patients with colorectal liver metastases (CLM) still is debated. Its relevance could be enhanced in the case of recurrent disease. The current study aimed to elucidate the role of PET-CT in restaging and treatment planning for recurrent CLM. METHODS: A series of 352 consecutive patients undergoing their first liver resection for CLM between 2005 and 2014 was reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: We propose an objective and practical classification system to predict difficulty of different laparoscopic liver resections (LLRs). BACKGROUND: Surgical difficulty is highly subjective and is not influenced only by surgical factors. Consequently, few series have described the degree of difficulty of LLR or attempted to objectively assess the surgical difficulty. METHODS: From a prospectively maintained database between 1995 and 2015, patients undergoing LLR without simultaneous procedures were selected, and LLR procedures were divided into 3 groups according to scores based on operative time (< or ≥190 minutes), blood loss (< or ≥100 mL), and conversion rate (< or ≥4...

For patients with bilobar colorectal liver metastases, the recent increase in surgical approaches has resulted in more opportunities to extend the benefits of surgery to patients who were previously deemed unresectable. Surgical options now include anatomic hepatectomy, 1-stage parenchymal sparing hepatectomy, traditional 2-stage hepatectomy with or without portal vein embolization, associated liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy, local ablative techniques, and hepatic arterial infusion therapy...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Neuroendocrine liver metastasis tumors (NELM) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with varied histologic features and a wide range of clinical behaviors. We aimed to identify the fraction of patients cured after liver surgery for NELM. METHODS: Cure fraction models were used to analyze 376 patients who underwent hepatectomy with curative intent for NELM. RESULTS: The median and 5-year disease-free survival (DFS) were 4...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic value of embryonic origin in patients undergoing resection after chemotherapy for colon cancer liver metastases (CCLM). METHODS: We identified 725 patients with primary colon cancer and known RAS mutation status who underwent hepatic resection after preoperative chemotherapy for CCLM (1990 to 2015). Survival after resection of CCLM from midgut origin (n = 238) and hindgut origin (n = 487) was analyzed...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignancies in Western countries. Over the last 20 years, and the last decade in particular, the clinical outcome for patients with metastatic CRC (mCRC) has improved greatly due not only to an increase in the number of patients being referred for and undergoing surgical resection of their localised metastatic disease but also to a more strategic approach to the delivery of systemic therapy and an expansion in the use of ablative techniques. This reflects the increase in the number of patients that are being managed within a multidisciplinary team environment and specialist cancer centres, and the emergence over the same time period not only of improved imaging techniques but also prognostic and predictive molecular markers...

Functional imaging encompasses techniques capable of assessing physiological parameters of tissues, and offers useful clinical information in addition to that obtained from morphological imaging. Such techniques may include magnetic resonance imaging with diffusion-weighted sequences or hepatobiliary contrast agents, perfusion imaging, or molecular imaging with radiolabelled tracers. The liver is of major importance in oncological practice; not only is hepatocellular carcinoma one of the malignancies with steadily rising incidence worldwide, but hepatic metastases are regularly observed with a range of solid neoplasms...

The main obstacle to achieving an R0 resection after a major hepatectomy is inability to preserve an adequate future liver remnant (FLR) to avoid postoperative liver failure (PLF). Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a novel technique for resecting tumors that were previously considered unresectable, and this technique results in a vast increase in the volume of the FLR in a short period of time. However, this technique continues to provoke heated debate because of its high mortality and morbidity...

BACKGROUND: Data on recurrence patterns following hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases (CRLMs) and their impact on long-term outcomes are limited in the setting of modern multimodal management. This study sought to characterize the patterns of, factors associated with, and survival impact of recurrence following initial hepatectomy for CRLMs. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing initial hepatectomy for CRLMs at 39 institutions (2006-2013) was conducted...

OBJECTIVE: This study compares the Glissonian approach with the standard approach to laparoscopic liver resection for safety and efficacy. BACKGROUND: The standard laparoscopic approach to anatomic liver resection is the dissection of the elements of the Glissonian pedicle below the hilar plate. In contrast, the Glissonian approach identifies the intrahepatic pedicles by tentative clamping. Concerns have been raised about the safety of the Glissonian approach in laparoscopic liver surgery...

BACKGROUND: Data are lacking on long-term outcomes of patients undergoing major hepatectomy requiring bile duct resection (BDR) for the treatment of colorectal cancer liver metastases. METHODS: Patients who underwent major hepatectomy (≥3 segments) for metastatic colorectal cancer from 2000-2010 at three US academic institutions were included. The primary outcome was disease-specific survival (DSS). RESULTS: Of 429 patients, nine (2.1%) underwent BDR, which was associated with pre-operative portal vein embolization (25...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC) has been shown to be beneficial in the management of unresectable colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). This systematic review evaluates the potential role of HAIC as a neoadjuvant downstaging therapy, prior to hepatic resection with curative intent for initially unresectable CRLM. METHODS: A literature search was conducted using Pubmed, EMBASE and Medline databases from January 2000 to November 2013. Studies adopting HAIC as a neoadjuvant bridging therapy for hepatic resection for CRLM were included...

BACKGROUND: Stoma reversal can be performed during liver resection (LR) in patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRCLM) whose primary colorectal tumor has been previously resected with a diverting loop ileostomy. This combined procedure is reputed to be associated with an increased morbidity. This study investigates the impact of simultaneous loop ileostomy closure (LIC) on the postoperative outcome of LR for CRCLM. METHODS: From November 1996 to April 2012, 408 patients who underwent LR for CRCLM were retrospectively studied from a prospective database...

BACKGROUND: Liver resection is associated with significant morbidity, and assessment of risk is an important part of preoperative consultations. Objective methods exist to assess operative risk, including cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX). Subjective assessment is also made in clinic, and patients perceived to be high-risk are referred for CPX at our institution. This article addresses clinicians' ability to identify patients with a higher risk of surgical complications after hepatectomy, using selection for CPX as a surrogate marker for increased operative risk...
