Leading Swiss gastrointestinal cancer surgeon discusses importance of healthy liver preservation in metastatic liver cancer or primary liver cancer surgery. The more healthy liver remains after the operation, the fewer growth factors are secreted to stimulate liver regeneration. But those same growth factors also stimulate cancer metastases growth. Preserving as much healthy liver during cancer resection as possible is important to prevent metastatic cancer growth.
Why saving as much healthy liver as possible is crucial in liver cancer treatment? How regeneration of liver increases cell growth factors? How these cell growth factors can lead to cancer metastasis? Leading Swiss colorectal and liver cancer surgeon explains best practices in surgical cancer treatment. Liver-sparing cancer surgery method prevents tumor re-growth. Liver-sparing cancer surgery method explained. Preservation of as much healthy liver in resection of liver cancer is very important. Primary liver cancer or metastatic liver cancer resection must keep all healthy liver around the tumor. Liver regeneration is driven by growth factors. Same growth factors drive caner cell regrowth. Chemotherapy must be started soon after liver cancer surgery resection to prevent metastases from growing.
