Abstract

We carried out a study on the surgical treatment and indications, and organ specificities of metastatic pulmonary cancer treated in this hospital until 1981. As for the indications for surgical treatment, the conditions that the primary lesion should be controlled, and that there are no metastases to parts other than the lungs are the same as before. However, in the case of the uterus and colon, it is considered that the indications may be further extended to include bilateral resection should there be only 1-2 lesions on both side. Recently, we carried bilateral resection on several cases, and managed to obtain satisfactory results.
