Portal vein embolization (PVE) is an effective procedure to increase the future remnant liver (FRL) before major hepatectomy. A controversial issue is that PVE may stimulate tumor growth and can be associated with poor prognosis after liver resection for colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of PVE on long-term survival following major hepatectomy for CRLM.

Abstract

Portal vein embolization (PVE) is an effective procedure to increase the future remnant liver (FRL) before major hepatectomy. A controversial issue is that PVE may stimulate tumor growth and can be associated with poor prognosis after liver resection for colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of PVE on long-term survival following major hepatectomy for CRLM.
