      Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in both men and women and approximately one third of patients develop liver metastases. Tumor free resection margins (R0 resection) is an important prognostic factor [

      ]. This can be due to surgical technique but mainly due to tumor biology, tumor burden and surgical complexity.
