Project Status: 
Treatment of colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) by combination of resection, ablative or interventional techniques seem to influence the course of the disease. Non-resection techniques could also be use during the first step of the ALPPS procedure to treat the future liver remnant.
Aim of this study is to identify if the usage of ablative or interventional techniques during ALPPS has influence on the pattern of recurrence and the long time survival after ALPPS.
The international ALPPS registry will be used as basis for this analysis. Other enters that perform ≥10 cases over a period of ≥3 years will be also asked to provide their data to this study.
