Local recurrence of colorectal liver metastases following RFA – can we do BETA?ANZ Journal of Surgery (2010)
AbstractFor patients with colorectal liver metastases, the treatment modality of choice is surgical resection if curative intent is being considered. Currently, only 20 to 25% of colorectal liver metastases are amenable to surgical resection because of the anatomical distribution of the tumours, the presence of concomitant hepatic cirrhosis or patient co- morbidities.1 For patients with unresectable disease that is confined to the liver, there is a role for a suitable ablative technology.
