Liver resection is the treatment of choice for resectable hepatic metastases; however, most patients have unresectable disease when diagnosed. Hepatic cryotherapy has been advocated to treat unresectable tumours in the liver although its precise role is still being evaluated. This article discusses mechanisms of action, technical considerations, current indications and the early results of cryotherapy in treating metastatic liver disease.
