Abstract

BACKGROUND: Many extrapulmonary neoplasms metastasize to the lungs. We conducted a retrospective review of all patients who underwent pulmonary metastasectomy for oligometastatic disease at two centres in order to determine long-term outcomes. METHODS: The study institutions' thoracic surgery databases were searched for all patients who underwent pulmonary metastasectomy from 2000 to 2017. RESULTS: There were a total of 476 patients who underwent pulmonary metastasectomy. Mean age at time of surgery was 57.2 ± 15.9 years. Mean number of pulmonary lesions was 1.9 ± 1.6. Mean disease-free interval (DFI) was 3.6 ± 4.3 years. The most common primary neoplasms were colorectal cancer (CRC) in 35.1..
