History of the surgical management of pulmonary metastases and development of the International Registry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pulmonary metastasectomy has been gradually recognized as a potentially curative treatment in properly selected cases, and a greater number of patients are now being offered salvage surgery. The results of the International Registry of Lung Metastases (IRLM) have defined the long-term survival after metastasectomy and provided a new classification system combining anatomical and biological features to assess prognosis in the various primary tumors.
