Abstract

Twenty-two patients with bronchial carcinoid tumors were resected in a 13-year period. An atypical carcinoid and a typical carcinoid tumors were found in 9 and 11 patients, respectively. Three patients had tumorlets. Preoperative diagnosis was made in 6 patients. A lobectomy was done in 18 patients (81.8%); a pneumonectomy in 2 (9.1%) and a wedge resection in other 2 (9.1%). Overall five-year and ten-year survivals were 90.9% and 75.7%, respectively. One patient died from metastatic disease and one from gastric cancer. Twenty patients are alive and free from disease. Univariate analysis showed no significant impact on survival of any of the recorded variables (age, sex, smoking, history, environmental exposure, family history of lung cancer, presenting signs and symptoms, radiologic tests, diagnostic laboratory tests, treatment, and pathologic description). Surgical treatment of bronchial carcinoid tumors is advised in order to achieve long-term disease-free survivals.
