Liver transplantation for colorectal metastasis: a stepwise approach

Authors: Axel Andres, Christian Toso

Abstract

Six years after publishing their first results on liver transplantation for colorectal liver metastases (SECA-I) (1), Dueland et al. present a new trial on the same topic gathering 15 transplanted patients (SECA-II). They now use more restricted selection criteria, including at least 1 year between cancer diagnosis and transplantation, a documented partial (>10%) response to chemotherapy, and the absence of extra-hepatic metastasis.
