ABSTRACT
The article discusses the clinical practice guidelines intended for resection of colorectal cancer and liver metastases. These guidelines are used to address a number of issues including management of hepatic metastases, curative resection of the primary colorectal tumor and treatment modality. To formulate these guidelines a meeting involving surgeons, oncologists, radiologists and other researchers was held at the Pelican Center in Basingstok, England during October 2-4, 2003.
