Twenty-five patients who had hepatic metastases from carcinomas of the colon and rectum had resection for cure at Memorial Hospital, with a determinate five-year survival rate of 40 per cent, and 10-year survival rate of 28 per cent. Most of the hepatic metastatic lesions were solitary, small, and peripheral, and were treated with simple wedge resection. These favorable results justify an aggressive approach to solitary metastatic lesions in the liver.
