A case of curative-intent hepatectomy for colon cancer metastatic to the scapula and liver.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Patients with colon cancer metastatic to liver and bone are deemed non-curable and have a poor prognosis. We present a case of recurrent colon cancer with synchronous hepatic and bony metastases treated with radiation, chemotherapy, and curative-intent hepatectomy. The patient is alive and free of disease recurrence, off chemotherapy, more than 2 years post-hepatectomy.
