Our understanding of metastatic disease is constantly evolving. Survival outcomes for patients with colorectal cancer metastatic to the liver are poor, although a subset of patients with limited or “oligometastatic” disease may exist in a therapeutic window amenable to aggressive local intervention. The purpose of this review is to describe and compare the range of non-surgical local treatment options available for the treatment of oligometastatic colorectal disease involving the liver.
