INTRODUCTION Peritoneal metastasis from lung cancer is an uncommon clinical event and there are limited data on what factors predict peritoneal progression. This study retrospectively investigated whether patterns of metastatic spread and oncogene status in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are associated with peritoneal metastasis. METHODS Patients with metastatic non-squamous NSCLC (n=410) were identified at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Sites of… CONTINUE READING
