Transcript of video
Lung metastases treatment in colorectal cancer. Dr. Martin Schilling, MD. Lung metastases treatment and liver metastases treatment in stage 4 colorectal cancer is possible with curative intent. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Liver and lung metastases can be resected at once by liver cancer surgeons and thoracic oncology surgeons working at the same time. Patients can have long-term survival after treatment of lung metastases from colorectal cancer. Medical second opinion clarifies stage 4 colorectal cancer diagnosis. Medical second opinion helps to decide if lung metastases surgery is possible in stage 4 colon cancer. Dr. Martin Schilling, MD. Best treatment for advanced stage 4 colon cancer with lung metastatic lesions. Medical second opinion from leading expert helps to find the best treatment for stage 4 colorectal cancer with lung metastases. Get medical second opinion on advanced colorectal cancer and be confident that your treatment is the best. Best colorectal cancer treatment center for lung metastases treatment. Video interview with leading surgeon in gastrointestinal cancer treatment surgery. Lung metastases and liver metastases in colorectal cancer happen in 50% of all patients. What is recent progress in treatment of stage 4 colorectal cancer with liver and lung metastases? How to get the best treatment for lung and liver metastases in colon cancer? Long-term survival of stage 4 colon cancer patients with pulmonary metastases is possible. Lung metastases treatment in colorectal cancer. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. We already discussed liver metastases in colorectal cancer. But lungs can also be affected by metastatic disease. Lung metastases in colon cancer previously precluded patients from surgical treatment of colon cancer. But now it is possible to resect lung metastases and other extra-hepatic metastases in colorectal cancer. Dr. Martin Schilling, MD. Lung metastases resection provides long-term survival benefit in metastatic colorectal cancer. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. What is your experience with treatment of metastatic lesions in colorectal cancer? Extra-hepatic metastases treatment in colon cancer. Dr. Martin Schilling, MD. Esophageal cancer, Gastric cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Liver cancer and Colon cancer surgeon, Switzerland. Sometimes stage 4 metastatic colorectal cancer patients present with liver and lung metastases. We usually do this. We resect both liver and lung metastases at the same time with thoracic surgeons. Or we resect liver and lung metastases from colon cancer sequentially. We use sequential resection if a major operation is required. Then we remove metastatic lesions above or below the diaphragm. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. You do surgery to remove liver and lung metastases in colorectal cancer patients. You work together with thoracic surgeons at the same time. You operate without staging the tumor first. Dr. Martin Schilling, MD. Esophageal cancer, Gastric cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Liver cancer and Colon cancer surgeon, Switzerland. That is correct. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Do you see a significant survival benefit in colorectal cancer patients with metastatic disease in two organs? Dr. Martin Schilling, MD. Esophageal cancer, Gastric cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Liver cancer and Colon cancer surgeon, Switzerland. We don’t have large survival data on those techniques. We resect lung and liver metastases in patients with colorectal cancer. But I’m convinced that with improved surgical techniques, we will see better survival of patients with lung and liver metastases. Dr. Martin Schilling, MD. There is a decreased mortality during the surgical operation and decreased complication rates. Just as we have seen better survival of patients with liver metastases from colorectal stage 4 cancer. Surgery can lead to long-term survival in lung metastases in stage 4 colon cancer. Liver and lung metastases in colon cancer differ from all other cancers.
