Learn more about how intraoperative ultrasound can influence operative strategy in two-stage liver resections through:
 - mapping hepatic vasculature with regards to tumors
 - defining margins of resection 
 - enabling parenchymal-preserving resection

Liver resection remains the only potentially curative treatment providing long-term survival for patients with extensive bilobar colorectal liver metastases.

A two-stage hepatectomy is a potentially curative strategy that consists of:
• A first-stage procedure, where colorectal liver metastases in one hemiliver are resected. The primary colorectal tumor is often resected by combining a partial colectomy with the first-stage liver resection.
• A second-stage procedure, where all colorectal liver metastases in the contralateral hemiliver are resected.

Read about the advantages of intraoperative ultrasound in the detection of liver tumours and the planning of surgery.

Dept. of Digestive and Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery, AZ Groeninge Hospital, Kortrijk, Belgium

Liver resection is the standard treatment for colorectal liver metastases and has a five-year overall survival rate estimated to be as high as 58%1. However, up to 75% of patients undergoing liver resection for colorectal liver metastases will develop intrahepatic recurrence2. The modern treatment of colorectal liver metastases is based on a multidisclipinary approach. From a surgical point of view, the management of colorectal liver metastases has significantly changed over recent years.
