      ]. The authors evaluated the impact of synchronous liver resection on the risk of anastomotic leakage using a propensity score match analysis. In this paper, the authors compared the leakage rate between simultaneous resection and elective colorectal resection based on a database from multicenter observational study and suggested that combining hepatic with colorectal resection does not significantly increase the incidence of AL. With largest sample size, mainly focusing on anastomotic leakage, this study well solved the confusions of the influence of synchronous resection of CRCLM on postoperative morbidity.
