      Since the effects of chemotherapy and molecular targeting agents for sarcoma with lung metastasis are limited, pulmonary metastasectomy can become one of the treatment options for the control of disease. Partial resection is the first choice of surgical procedure for lung metastasis to preserve pulmonary function. As for the tumors which occur at hilum or are too large for partial resection, the extended resection such as segmentectomy or lobectomy is occasionally required while the clinical impact of these procedures is unknown. In this study, we examined preoperative prognostic factors of sarcoma patients who underwent segmentectomy or lobectomy for lung metastasis.

      During January 2006 to December 2014, a total of 129 patients underwent pulmonary resection for lung metastasis of sarcoma at Okayama University Hospital. Among them, 40 patients (31%) underwent segmentectomy or lobectomy. The 3-year survival rate was evaluated by univariate (KaplanMeier method) and multivariate (Cox proportional hazard model) analyses with log-rank test.

      Among 40 patients, the median age was 55 years old (range, 17 to 76). Thirty-five patients (88%) were female. Thirty patients (75%) harbored two or more distant metastatic lesions at initial diagnosis and 21 patients (52.5%) suffered from bilateral lung metastasis at the first lung metastasectomy. Median maximum diameter of the maximum lung tumor and median number of the lung metastasis was 30 mm (range, 8 to 110) and 3 (range, 1 to 19), respectively. Eight patients (20%) had two years or more disease-free interval at the first lung resection. The 3-year survival rate was 36.8% in the entire cohort. The univariate analyses revealed that the 3-year survival rate was significantly better in the patients with smaller size of lung metastasis (50.5% in the tumors with maximum diameter ≤ 30mm vs 20.7% in those > 30mm, P < 0.01), unilateral lung metastasis (45.6% vs 29.5% for bilateral, P < 0.05), and the absence of metastatic lesion at initial diagnosis (50.9% vs 28.1% for the presence, P < 0.05). Smaller numbers of lung metastasis and longer disease-free interval showed favorable prognosis with marginal significance (P < 0.1). The multivariate analysis with the above five factors revealed that unilateral lung metastasis at the first pulmonary metasetasectomy was an independent favorable prognostic factor (HR 2.41, 95%CI 1.09 to 5.32, P < 0.05).

      Extended pulmonary resection such as segmentectomy or lobectomy may be considered for the patients with sarcoma lung metastasis especially when the tumors are unilateral.
