Abstract

After surgical exeresis of pulmonary metastases from colorectal carcinoma the 5-year survival rate is 30% vs 5% in non treated patients. Postoperative survival is longer for patients with a primary rectal cancer. Single pulmonary metastatic lesions, negative ilar and mediastinal lymph nodes, and Dukes' stages A and B are favourable prognostic criteria. The authors review literature's data and report and analyze their clinical observations.
