Colorectal cancer is common worldwide and is predicted to become more so in the coming years. The liver is the most common site of metastasis and management is increasingly complex. A multidisciplinary team approach to management is essential, and is associated with better outcomes. Patients with irresectable liver metastases can still benefit from the involvement of a liver specialist, as high secondary resection rates can be achieved with combination chemotherapy, incorporating novel biological therapies and liver-directed local and locoregional treatments.
