Abstract

From January 1955 to April 1987 111 patients with bronchial carcinoid were operated on in our department. There were 62 males and 49 females with a mean age of 45.5 years. Preoperative histological diagnosis was achieved in 22 cases, while in five patients, a false positive diagnosis of small cell lung cancer was reported. Fifteen patients required pneumonectomy, 70 had lobectomy, 16 bilobectomy, and four segmentectomy. One patient required tracheal resection, while in another patient the tumour was removed through bronchotomy. Four patients were completely treated with YAG laser phototherapy. There were three postoperative deaths. The following variables were analysed and discussed in order to evaluate their influence on prognosis: (1) size of the tumour, (2) typical or atypical appearance, (3) endoluminal or extraluminal growth, (4) vascular invasion, (5) node metastases. Atypical onset, node metastases and extraluminal invasion are significant factors in worsening the prognosis.
