    Purpose: Although it remains controversial whether local ablation or surgery is better for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), surgical resection is the first choice for advanced HCC. Anatomic hepatic resection is the preferred procedure to improve prognosis, but to date, its superiority...

    Treatment of four or more colorectal liver metastases (CRLMs) is controversial and remains a relative contraindication to surgery at some institutions. We sought to assess the outcome of patients with four or more CRLMs treated with surgery. Patients (159) with four or more CRLMs were treated...
