Abstract

In February 2019, the US Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) published their Expert Consensus Document on Pulmonary Metastasectomy, stating that there has never been a randomized trial on the subject but that ‘metastatic disease survival is assumed to be zero’. This would mean that all survival beyond 5 years is attributable to metastasectomy [1]. The randomized controlled trial (RCT) Pulmonary Metastasectomy in Colorectal Cancer (PulMiCC) was published in May 2020 [2]. PulMiCC contradicted those 2 statements: there was now an RCT and the control survival was not zero. Dirk Van Raemdonck...
