AnotationMetastases of colorectal carcinoma (mCRC) are frequently present in an advanced colorectal carcinoma (Dukes D). Despite the high quality of current diagnostic methods the detection of mCRC is often late. For this reason, only 15 to 20 percent of patients are selected for a radical resection after a a diagnosis of mCRC. Liver resection (laparoscopic or open) or radiofrequency ablation (RFA) are considered to be a standard in treatment of mCRC. These methods offer patients considerably longer survival and a better quality of life. The comparison between laparoscopic and open approach in treatment of mCRC is an important step in determining the best possible therapeutic algorithm of mCRC.
