Abstract

To examine clinical features and outcome of patients who underwent hepatic resection for colorectal liver metastases (LM) involving the caudate lobe. Consecutive patients who underwent hepatic resection for LM from May 1990 to September 2004 were analyzed from a multicenter database. Demographics, operative data, pathologic margin status, recurrence, and survival were analyzed. Of 580 patients, 40 (7%) had LM involving the caudate. Six had isolated caudate LM and 34 had LM involving the caudate plus one or more other hepatic segments. Patients with caudate LM were more likely to have synchronous primary colorectal cancer (63% vs. 36%; P∈=∈0.01), multiple LM (70% vs. 51%; P∈=∈0.02) and required extended hepatic resection more often than patients with non-caudate LM (60% vs. 18%; P∈∈0.05). Pathological margins were positive in 15 (38%) patients with caudate LM and in 43 (8%) with non-caudate LM (P∈
