Surgical treatments for liver and pancreatic disease:
Purpose Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of colorectal liver mestastases (CRLM) is a relatively new technique which may provide local control of tumors while causing minimal impact on the patient’s health and quality of life. There is little data on long-term outcomes and patient survival following RFA. The purpose of this study was to review our 10-year experience with patients undergoing RFA and CRLM with a focus on technique, patient selection and 5-year survival.

American Cancer Society’s description and explanation of staging cancer. Staging is the process of finding out how much cancer there is in the body and where it is located. It is how the doctor learns the stage of a person's cancer. Doctors use this information to plan treatment and to help find out a person's outlook (prognosis).
