The BICRLM.org team is delighted to invite you to collaborate in a retrospective study investigating the outcomes of liver surgery among patients with bilobar colorectal liver metastases.  

What is it about?

Project Summary (see the Protocol for details):

  • Inclusion criteria: Patients with bilobar CRLM with at least two lesions in the anatomical right and anatomical left sides (minimum of 4 lesions in total) and are considered for surgical clearance 
  • Type of intervention: Surgery (2-stage resection / single stage resection / resection +/- ablation)
  • Primary outcomes: Liver-specific recurrence at 3-,6- months,1-,2-,3- and 5-year period
  • Secondary outcomes: Overall survival and disease free survival at 3-,6-months,1-,3-,5- and 10-year period, and post-operative outcomes                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Why participate?

  • Identify the clinical and pathological features influencing the RFS and OS among patients with BiCRLM irrespective of the treatment modalities used
  • Evaluate the post-operative outcomes and be able to make informed decisions for this group of patients with complex disease distribution
  • Become part of a growing global surgical research and audit collaborative network
  • Obtain PubMed citable co-authorship and access the raw data for future studies


  • Data collection period: The study will be open for enrolment and data collection from 1st November 2020 to 31st March 2021

How can you get involved?
