Liver resection for metastatic liver lesions


Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)

  6. No evidence of chronic hepatic diseases which affect systemic chemotherapy and/or surgical resection
  7. Performance status (ECOG): 0-1
  8. Vital organ functions, including hematopoietic, cardiac, respiratory and renal functions, are preserved.
