Aim of the paper is to evaluate 43 extrapleural pneumonectomy performed from 1988 to May 2000. Criteria for extrapleural pneumonectomy were pleural biopsy by thoracoscopy, potentially completely resectable unilateral disease by computed tomography and predicted postresection forced expiratory volume >1,3 L/sec. The resections regarded 33 pleural mesothelioma, 9 pleural lung-carcinosis and 1 pleural melanoma effusion. The perioperative mortality rate was 2,2% (1 death) and morbidity 21,4%.
