OBJECTIVE The implantation of cancer cells in the chest wall after percutaneous needle biopsy of the lung is rare. We investigated the clinical outcomes of implantation metastasis after percutaneous fine-needle aspiration biopsy of pulmonary mass suggestive of lung cancer. METHODS Between January 1990 and December 2001, nine patients were treated for implantation metastasis of the chest wall. We retrospectively reviewed the patients' records and analyzed their clinical outcomes. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
