Peri-operative chemotherapy for resectable colorectal lung metastasis: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

ABSTRACT: PURPOSE:Several studies have evaluated surgical resection of pulmonary metastases as a standard treatment option for colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with resectable pulmonary metastases. However, the role of peri-operative chemotherapy after complete resection of pulmonary metastases from CRC patients is still controversial. This systematic review and meta-analysis is aimed to investigate the clinical efficacy of peri-operative chemotherapy after resection of CRC pulmonary metastases. METHODS:PubMed, the Cochrane Library databases, and Embase were searched for studies evaluating the effect of peri-operative chemotherapy on the survival of patients with CRC after pulmonary metastasectomy. The hazard ratio (HR) was used for analyzing overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS)/recurrence-free survival (RFS)/disease-free survival (DFS). RESULTS:Eight studies were included in the final analysis. The outcome showed that peri-operative chemotherapy had a significant favourable effect on OS (HR 0.83, 95% CI 0.75-0.92, p?
