REVIEW
Rocco Bilancia, Marco Nardini, David Waller
Metastatic uterine cancer is a form of systemic disease. As for other solid tumours, it is advocated by some authors that in selected patients, lung metastasectomy may play a role in long-term disease control. The practice of lung metastasectomy is however open to criticism as there is lack of convincing evidence, and over-encouraging outcomes may be attributed to intrinsic selection bias. The case of metastatic uterine tumours is reviewed in the light of the available literature, in order to identify common patterns and prognostic factors that may influence and determine an individualised and informed patient decision...

Sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with a marked propensity to metastasize to the lungs. Chemotherapy offers only a limited benefit in metastatic disease, whereas lung metastasectomy, in selected cases, can lead to long-term survival. Other local ablative techniques and hybrid therapies have been proposed. A multidisciplinary setting is of paramount importance for choosing the most appropriate treatment for each case. There is no randomized controlled trial providing formal evidence of the effectiveness of lung metastasectomy...

Pulmonary metastasectomy has become a standard procedure for pediatric patients with certain types of solid tumors. Surgeons, expert pediatric oncologists and radiation oncologists contribute with their different skills to the management of pulmonary metastases. Patients are usually scheduled for surgery in case of primary tumor control, in absence of metastases in other organs and when a complete resection is achievable. Nodules are removed through precision resections using electrocautery or laser methods in order to ensure radical surgery with adequate margins...

Metastasectomy is the most frequent surgical resection undertaken by thoracic surgeons, being the lung the second common site of metastases. The present oncological criteria for pulmonary metastasectomy are: (I) the primary cancer need to be controlled or controllable; (II) no extrathoracic metastasis-that is not controlled or controllable-exists; (III) all of the tumor must be resectable, with adequate pulmonary reserve; (IV) there are no alternative medical treatment options with lower morbidity. General favourable prognostic features in patients with pulmonary metastases are: (I) one or few metastases; (II) long disease free interval; (III) normal CEA levels in colorectal cancers...

Background: Pulmonary metastasectomy is considered a standard procedure in the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). Different prognostic factors including multiple metastatic nodules, the presence of extra-pulmonary metastases and BRAF mutation status have been associated with poor survival. The aim of this study was to evaluate which factors influenced survival in CRC patients undergoing pulmonary metastasectomy by studying primary tumors and pulmonary metastases. Methods: All patients treated for primary CRC who presented pulmonary metastases in a 10-year period were considered (group A)...

Background: Pulmonary metastasectomy is an established treatment modality for patients with soft as well as bone tissue sarcomas. Aim of this study is to describe the Essen experience in the surgical management of patients with pulmonary sarcoma metastases. Methods: This is a retrospective single center analysis of perioperative outcome of patients undergoing pulmonary metastasectomy for sarcoma metastases from 1997-2017 and a summary of published papers on this topic...

Background: This retrospective study is designed to evaluate factors affecting survival in a population of patients receiving pulmonary metastasectomy after gynecologic cancers. Methods: Nineteen patients with isolated lung metastases (one or two) were surgically treated with R0 resection. Four of them underwent lobectomies. Results: Six patients (31.6%) received adjuvant therapy and 11 (58%) experienced recurrences after metastasectomy. Five- and ten-year survival were 40...

Background: The lung is one of the sites most frequently affected by metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). Nonsurgical therapy for mRCC has limited efficacy, while the 5-year survival rates data published in literature after pulmonary surgery for metastasectomy, emphasize the role of surgery as the treatment that guarantees the best effectiveness in pulmonary resectable metastases. Methods: From January 2000 to March 2016, 27 patients underwent pulmonary metastasectomy for metastatic renal cancer was retrospectively reviewed...

Background: Surgical resection has been widely admitted as the treatment of choice for pulmonary metastases of colorectal cancer (CRC). Nevertheless, this practice is not supported by high level of evidence and patients' eligibility remains controversial. Aim of this study was to evaluate long terms results and factors influencing survival after lung metastasectomy of CRC. Methods: A single-center retrospective analysis of patients with pathologically proven colorectal metastasis, operated from 2004 to 2013, was performed...
