In this multicenter retrospective study, the authors observe that overall survival after liver resection and postoperative tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy for the treatment of metastatic gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) exceeds previous reports of liver resection or tyrosine kinase therapy alone. On the basis of the results presented here, the authors recommend that all patients with resectable GIST liver metastases undergo partial hepatectomy and postoperative TKI therapy.
