Abstract Despite the greater number of hepatectomies for non-colorectal non-endocrine liver metastases, its benefits and its indications remain unclear because most of the patient series are small with heterogeneous primary tumours. After analyzing the literature including a large recent series (1451 patients), we can conclude that liver resection of non-colorectal non-endocrine metastases is feasible, safe, and improves survival. Better selection of patients according to their tumour biology (a long interval between the primary and liver metastases), the histologic type (non epithelial) and tumour chemosensitivity should improve long-term disease-free and overall survival, as we observed after resection of liver metastases from colorectal cancer.
