23 patients with carcinoma of the lung and a brain metasasis had both the primary and secondary tumors surgically removed (combined operation). Results revealed that 52% of the patients were unimproved and died during the first 6 months. Operation improved short-term survivals in 26%. 5 patients (22%) lived longer than 2 years, and 3 of them (13%) are alive and well 10 or more years following operation.
