  • Better chances for cancer in the liver


    Our liver is a special organ: if you cut away part of it, in most cases a new piece of liver will grow back. If someone has cancer in the liver, the affected part of the liver can be surgically removed. But you can only do this if at least 30% of the liver remains. For many patients whose remaining liver is too small, this means that they cannot undergo surgery. But thanks to international research from Maastricht UMC+, the treatment options for cancer in the liver have now been significantly expanded.
