Abstract

From 1986 to 1992, ten patients with pulmonary metastases from colorectal cancer underwent resection at the Department of Surgery, Padua University. The median interval between colon resection and lung resection was 2l.7 months. In 5 patients the lesion was solitary. 4 lobectomies, 2 segmentectomies, 4 wedge resections were performed. Resection was curative in 9 cases. There were no operative or perioperative deaths. The mean follow-up was 24.7 months. The mean disease-free period after curative resection for metastatic disease was 25.2 months. Aggressive surgery for colorectal lung metastases is therefore justified in selected patients, even in those with a short disease free period and with multiple nodules, if curative resection is feasible.
