Arch Surg. 2007;142(12):1150. doi:10.1001/archsurg.142.12.1150

In the current issue of the Archives, Sa Cunha and colleagues report their single-institution experience with repeat liver resection because of recurrent colorectal liver metastases. The authors corroborate previously published data1-3 that show a scond liver resection to be safe and to provide a survival benefit similar to that with initial hepatectomy. Their report, however, is notable for 2 major discrepancies when compared with other recently published data on repeat hepatic resection.
