Favorites Abstract Introduction: In synchronous colorectal liver metastases SCLMssimultaneous resection SR of the primary tumor and liver metastases has not gained wide acceptance. Most authors prefer staged resections SgRespecially in patients presenting rectal cancer or requiring major hepatectomy.
Methods: Morbidity, mortality, survival rates and length of hospital stay were compared between the two groups of patients SR vs. A subgroup analysis was performed for patients with similar characteristics e.
Mean hospital stay was significantly shorter in patients undergoing SR than SgR The characteristics of SR and SgR groups were similar, except the following parameters: rectal tumor A comparative analysis of morbidity, mortality and survival rates between SR and SgR was performed for subgroups of patients presenting these parameters.
In each of these subgroups, SR was associated with similar morbidity, mortality and survival rates compared with SgR p value 0. Keywords: chemotherapy; colorectalcancer; livermetastases; simultaneousresection; stagedresection; synchronous.
