Abstract: This study is based on 29 patients undergoing resection for pulmonary metastases from 1960 to 1981 in our clinics. Factors concerning their prognosis are discussed in this study. 1) Prognosis following surgery is associated with the origin of the primary disease, the sizes and numbers of pulmonary metastases, and the disease-free period. 2) Pulmonary metastases arising from original tumors with slow growth rate, such as thyroid cancer, breast cancer, and some of osteogenic sarcomas, are favorable candidates for surgical treatment. 3) Operative methods of choice are not essential in anticipating better results. Complete removal of the tumor is required. We assume that improved chemotherapy may be contributary to a gain in a longer survival.
