Long term disease-free survival resulting from combined modality management of patients presenting with oligometastatic, non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC)


, : Long term disease-free survival resulting from combined modality management of patients presenting with oligometastatic, non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). RadioTherapy and Oncology 81(2): 163-167

We report outcomes on 23 patients with oligometastastic (1 or 2 sites) NSCLC treated with aggressive local, regional, and systemic treatment. The results suggest that this is a favorable subset of patients who may benefit from such an approach, with a 22% rate of long-term survival. This treatment strategy is a departure from the usual practice of palliative-only therapy for all NSCLC patients presenting with metastatic disease.
