Abstract

From 1985 to 1990 19 patients with pulmonary metastases underwent surgery at the Department of Surgery of Padua University. Primary tumor sites were: colon (6 patients), kidney (4 patients), testicle (2 patients), skin (2 patients), uterus (2 patients), lung (2 patients), breast (1 patient). The mean disease-free interval from the treatment of the primary tumor to recurrence was 29.0 months. Six lobectomies, 14 single segmentectomies, 4 multlple unilateral wedge resections were performed. In 15/19 patients (84.2%) the lesion was solitary. The mean follow-up was 25.0 months. The overall three year survival was 64.5% and appears to be correlated with the primary tumor type. Therefore an aggressive surgical approach for pulmonary metastases is justified especially if the primary tumor site is colon, kidney or uterus and in case of solitary lesion of other tumors (i.e. breast) if no alternative treatment is available.
