Pulmonary Metastases

Posted On 2021-03-03 13:39:11

This focused series on “Pulmonary Metastases” is edited by Prof. Khosro Hekmat from Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany.

In this series, we offer a comprehensive synopsis of the management of different primary tumors with lung metastases. The treatment strategies for lung metastases has become more complex. The lack of consensus guidelines forces us to discuss the indication for lung metastasis surgery as part of a multidisciplinary tumor board, which is made up of pneumologists, medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and surgeons. With the development of more effective systemic therapy for pulmonary metastatic disease, it is probable that more patients will be considered candidates for a multimodal management of pulmonary metastases from different primary tumors.
