Abstract: Whilst up to 50% of patients with colorectal carcinoma will develop liver metastases, only 20% of those patients will be amenable to potentially curative liver resection. There is therefore great need for other effective therapies, and we report complete ablation of a colorectal liver metastasis using electrolysis, which was histologically confirmed at 1 year. The clinical impact of complete tumour ablation at 1 year means that a proportion of those patients currently deemed inoperable and therefore incurable, may be suitable for curative treatment.
