OBJECTIVE This study assessed the sensitivity of helical computed tomography in the detection of pulmonary metastases in patients with colorectal cancer and the role of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery in patients with pulmonary metastases. METHODS A total of 120 operations for pulmonary metastases were performed in 91 patients with colorectal cancer. All patients received an open thoracotomy that allowed full operative inspection and palpation. Clinical data, including the size and… CONTINUE READING
