Objective. The mechanisms of hemodynamic alterations in colorectal liver metastases are not clearly understood yet. Considering that an increase in liver size in patients with metastases could also result in an alteration in total liver flow, we aimed to analyze hemodynamic changes relative to the liver volume and to search for the possibility of any intrinsic factors affecting blood flow in patients with metastases.
