INTRODUCTION: Colorectal liver metastases have a poor prognosis, and only 2% have an average 5-year survival if left untreated. Despite radical resection, the average five-year survival is between 25% and 44%. AIM: To explore the experience of the Clinic in the treatment of colorectal liver metastases, comparing it with data from the literature and based on the comparison to determine the influence of the type and extensity of resection survival after radical surgical treatment of patients. METHODS: This is a retrospective study. The study comprised the period between 01.01.2006 to 31.12.2015. It included a total of 239 cases, of whom: 179 patients underwent radical interventions, 5 palliative and 55 patients underwent explorative interventions due to liver metastases. RESULTS: Radical resection of liver metastases has the impact of the patient survival, and the survival is the smallest in the patients with left hemihepatectomy and the longest in the patients with bisegmentectomy. But no specific technique and the number of resected segments influenced the survival of patients with colorectal liver metastases. CONCLUSION: In patients with colorectal liver metastases only resection has potentially curative character. The type and amount of liver resection has no influence of the survival.
