Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess feasibility, risks, and patient outcomes in the treatment of colorectal metastases with two-stage hepatectomy. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Some patients with multiple hepatic colorectal metastases are not candidates for a complete resection by a single hepatectomy, even when downstaged by chemotherapy, after portal embolization, or combined with a locally destructive technique. In two-stage hepatectomy, the highest possible number of tumors is resected in a first, noncurative intervention, and the remaining tumors are resected after a period of liver regeneration. In selected patients with irresectable multiple metastases not amenable to a single hepatectomy procedure, two-stage hepatectomy might offer a chance of long-term remission. METHODS: Of consecutive patients with conventionally irresectable colorectal metastases treated by chemotherapy, 16 of 398 (4\%) became eligible for curative two-stage hepatectomy combined with chemotherapy and adjuvant nonsurgical interventions as indicated. RESULTS: Two-stage hepatectomy was feasible in 13 of 16 patients (81\%). There were no surgical deaths. The postoperative death rate (2 months or less) was 0\% for the first-stage procedure and 15\% for the second-stage one. Postoperative complication rates were 31\% and 45\%, respectively, with only one complication leading to reoperation. The 3-year survival rate was 35\%, with four patients (31\%) disease-free at 7, 22, 36, and 54 months. Median survival was 31 months from the second hepatectomy and 44 months from the diagnosis of metastases. CONCLUSIONS: Two-stage hepatectomy combined with chemotherapy may allow a long-term remission in selected patients with irresectable multiple metastases and increases the proportion of patients with resectable disease.
