Abstract

(1) Trimodality therapy is feasible in selected patients with MPM and has an acceptable operative mortality rate. (2) Our current pre-operative staging based on CT/MRI looks rather inaccurate and needs to be improved. (3) The high rate of post-surgical N2 patients or with diffusion to the inferior surface of the diaphragm may suggest the use of routine mediastinoscopy and laparoscopy for a more appropriate patient selection.
