Abstract

Since the first report of pulmonary metastasectomy for colorectal cancer (CRC) by Blalock in 1946, many surgical adjustments have been suggested (1). Over the past years, growing evidence has shown that a subset of patients with pulmonary metastases (PMs) may benefit from a curative resection, provided some strict criteria are met (2,3).
