Lung Metastases And Isolated Lung Perfusion


by: P. Van Schil
Surgical resection of lung metastases is a widely accepted procedure but long-term results are disappointing with a 5-year survival rate of approximately 40 per cent. The main prognostic factor is complete resection and a better survival is reported in patients with a single metastasis and a disease-free survival of more than 3 years. Re-operations are feasible but often patients become inoperable due to insufficient pulmonary reserve and new treatment modalities are looked for. Intravenous (iv) chemotherapy has no major impact on survival due to systemic side-effects when high doses are given.
