Role of thoracotomy and metastatectomy in gestational trophoblastic neoplasia: a single center experience



Role of thoracotomy and metastatectomy in gestational trophoblastic neoplasia: a single center experience



Journal of Reproductive Medicine 57(7-8): 350-358



Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) is a rare collection of malignancies which are usually curable with modern chemotherapy. Lung metastasis is a relatively common feature of these malignancies and is not considered an adverse prognostic feature. Occasionally, however, the management of these patients necessitates adjuvant thoracic surgery, either to establish the diagnosis or to potentially provide a curative resection of drug-resistant foci of disease. This case series highlights 5 such cases in which thoracic surgery has significantly contributed to the management and outcome of complicated GTN patients, and suggests when thoracic surgery should be considered in this rare group of patients.
