      Background:
      The effectiveness of pulmonary metastasectomy for non-small cell lung cancer(NSCLC) is controversial. The aim of this study is to report the overall survival after pulmonary metastasectomy for NSCLC and to determine prognostic factors for survival.

      Methods:
      Between June 2003 and July 2007, 39 patients underwent pulmonary metastasectomy in single center. Data from first time of pulmonary metastasectomy were included and data from more than second time of pulmonary metastasectomy were excluded.

      Results:
      There were 24 men and 15 women, and the median age at pulmonary metastasectomy was 64.0 years. The median recurrence free time from initial pulmonary resection to pulmonary metastasectomy was 18.5 months. The overall 5-year survival rate was 67.2%. In univariate analysis, ager under 70 years, recurrence free time over 24 months, adenocarcinoma and normal CEA level were prognostic factors for overall survival. Gender, initial TNM stage, operation type of pulmonary metastasectomy, number and size of pulmonary nodule and distance from nodule to margin were not associated with overall survival.

      Conclusion:
      In selected patients, pulmonary metastasectomy for NSCLC may confer a good survival. It appears reasonable that such patients should be considered as surgical candidates.
