Liver Metastases

Liver metastases are far more common in Australia than primary liver cancer, although the same is not true for African and Asian countries where endemic hepatitis B infection leads to much higher rates of hepatocellular carcinoma. Management of liver metastases has become more complex in recent decades with the advent of more readily available partial liver resections, more effective systemic cytotoxic therapies, and the use of hepatic artery embolisation and chemotherapy delivery.
