Study: Aggressive Surgery Underutilized with Pleural Mesothelioma
Aggressive surgery for the treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma is being underutilized, costing patients significant survival time, according to a recent study. Researchers found mesothelioma patients from all three histological subtypes — epithelioid, biphasic and sarcomatoid — can benefit from surgery, despite a reluctance to perform it today. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), a nationwide alliance of leading cancer centers, encourages surgery only for epithelioid patients. This eliminates the option for almost 40 percent of those diagnosed with mesothelioma. “Surgery is underutil...

Aggressive surgery for the treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) — unless part of a clinical trial — is no longer being recommended in the United Kingdom.

The belief was that potential harm was not worth the risk. The backtrack on surgery included the extrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP), the extended pleurectomy and decortication (P/D) and the partial pleurectomy (PP) — all of which are being done at cancer centers in the United States. “Surgery is a ...
