Cushing's group, operating on metastatic brain tumors in the 1920s, was the first to point out that lung cancer (usually adenocarcinoma in an upper lobe) was the most common primary tumor. Excision of a solitary metastasis could result in long-term survival. Magilligan and coworkers (J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 1976;72:690) introduced the modern era of large series of combined lung-brain resection with low mortality (3%) and a 5-year outcome of 21%. Our results (92 patients) confirm their… CONTINUE READING
