Combined Resections

Concurrent extraperitoneal metastases have long been considered a contraindication for resection, although some studies indicate the feasibility and better outcomes for the combined resection of hepatic and peritoneal metastases.[52,53] Similar radical resections, including other viscera (bladder, colon, diaphragm, pancreas, small intestine, spleen, stomach), have been reported with acceptable rates of morbidity.[54,55] Advances in electrosurgical techniques, including ablative technologies and hemostasis, have made such advances possible.
