A large series of surgical patients with pulmonary metastases of colorectal carcinoma: a prospective multicentre Spanish study
A prospective multicentre study analysed 532 patients with a first surgical procedure for pulmonary metastases of colorectal carcinoma. Complications arose in 16%, reoperations were necessary in 1% and mortality was 0.4%. Major lung resection and respiratory and/or cardiovascular co-morbidity were identified as independent risk factors, whereas a video-assisted approach was protective.
