Patients with noncolorectal hepatic metastases often face limited treatment options and a dismal prognosis. Over the last decade, the advent of targeted immunotherapies has transformed the treatment of certain metastatic cancers, such as sarcoma and melanoma; however, these patients eventually develop resistance. Metastatic sarcoma, melanoma, and breast and neuroendocrine tumors are notoriously treatment resistant once they have metastasized to the liver. For these cancers, minimally invasive transarterial and ablation therapies have emerged as safe, palliative therapies that can provide symptom control and even prolong survival.
