    ABSTRACT: Endotracheal metastases (ETM) from non-lung cancer are seldom seen. Their main clinical symptoms are cough, haemoptysis and dyspnoea, although occasionally an incidental finding is made during a bronchoscopy. Breast, colon and kidney adenocarcinoma might be associated with ETM, lung cancer being the most frequent cause. Its finding is associated with advanced disease but survival will depend on the primary origin, patient status and comorbidity. Therefore, treatment should be individual for each patient. In our centre we recommend pre-surgery bronchoscopy to exclude metastatic endotracheal lesions in patients with metastatic colon adenocarcinoma disease, as this might affect the final outcome and therefore management of the disease.

    ABSTRACT: Surgical resection of pulmonary metastasis is appropriate provided the general principals of oncological surgery are followed. Complete excision of the metastatic tumor is associated with long-term survival and low perioperative mortality. We present 2 cases of single pulmonary metastasis from osteosarcoma with cardiac involvement. In both cases, complete excision required left pneumonectomy by sternotomy with extracorporeal circulation. The outcomes were favorable, no perioperative complications were reported, and the patients remained free of disease at 14 and 17 months after surgery. In conclusion, we believe that the cases presented confirm that extended pneumonectomy with extracorporeal circulation if necessary is a valid approach for complete resection of pulmonary metastasis.

    ABSTRACT: Surgical resection of pulmonary metastasis is appropriate provided the general principals of oncológical surgery are followed. Complete excision of the metastatic tumor is associated with long-term survival and low perioperative mortality.We present 2 cases of single pulmonary metastasis from osteosarcoma with cardiac involvement. In both cases, complete excision required left pneumonectomy by sternotomy with extracorporeal circulation. The outcomes were favorable, no perioperative complications were reported, and the patients remained free of disease at 14 and 17 months after surgery.In conclusion, we believe that the cases presented confirm that extended pneumonectomy with extracorporeal circulation if necessary is a valid approach for complete resection of pulmonary metastasis.La resección quirúrgica de las metástasis pulmonares es un tratamiento aceptado si se mantienen los principios generales de la cirugía oncológica, y la exéresis completa de las metástasis se asocia a una supervivencia a largo plazo y una mortalidad perioperatoría baja.Presentamos 2 casos de metástasis pulmonar única de osteosarcoma con infiltración cardíaca, que requirió para su exéresis completa neumonectomía izquierda por esternotomía, con utilización de circulación extracorpórea. El resultado fue favorable, sin que hubiera complicaciones perioperatorias y los pacientes permanecen indemnes a los 14 y 17 meses de la intervención quirúrgica.En conclusión, consideramos que en casos seleccionados la neumonectomía ampliada, con utilización de circulación extracorpórea si se precisa, para poder realizar la exéresis completa de metástasis pulmonares es un procedimiento válido.

    ABSTRACT: Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura are uncommon and mainly arise in the pleura itself. Such tumors are generally asymptomatic and slow-growing. We report a series of 10 cases (8 men and 2 women with a mean age of 58.6 years) treated over a period of 54 months. The tumors were classified histologically as benign or malignant according to the criteria used by England. The treatment of choice was complete resection of the tumor. Six posterolateral thoracotomies and 4 video-assisted resections were performed. Histology showed a mixture of fibroblast-like cells and collagenous stroma. Sarcomatous degeneration was observed in the excised tumor of 1 patient. The patients were followed for a mean of 23.9 months. We conclude that although fibrous tumors of the pleura are considered benign histologically, complete resection and follow up for all patients are recommended.

Generalmente asintomáticos, poseen un crecimiento lento. En el presente trabajo se describe una serie de 10 casos (8 varones y 2 mujeres, con una edad media de 58,6 años) tratados en un período de 54 meses. Histológicamente se clasifi-caron como benignos o malignos basándose en los criterios de England. El tratamiento de elección fue la cirugía con criterios de resección completa.Se realizaron 6 toracotomías posterolaterales y 4 resecciones por videocirugía. Microscópicamente estaban constituidos por células de aspecto fibroblástico, entremezcladas con estroma colagenizada. Uno de los pacientes presentó una degeneración sarcomatosa en la pieza. Se siguió a los pacientes en consultas, con un seguimiento medio de 23,9 meses.En conclusión, los tumores fibrosos pleurales, aunque considerados histológicamente benignos, precisan de la resección completa. Se recomienda el seguimiento evolutivo en todos los pacientes.
