Abstract

Surgery for malignant pulmonary nodules in patients with a history of EC can be performed with acceptable surgical risk despite the high rate of comorbid illness in these patients. Proactive surgical management should be considered for treating malignant pulmonary nodules in patients with a previous history of EC as this strategy provides favourable long-term results.
