C Tanai, T Hamaguchi, S. i Watanabe, H Katai, N Tochigi and Y. Shimada    

Abstract:

We describe a 60-year-old male patient who survived for a long period after pulmonary metastasectomy for gastric cancer. The patient initially underwent distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer. Seventeen months after the gastrectomy, surgical resection of solitary pulmonary metastasis was performed and following resection, the patient has survived without relapse for more than 5 years. Carefully selected patients have a good chance of benefiting from pulmonary metastasectomy for gastric cancer.
