metastasectomy

metastasectomy

/me·tas·ta·sec·to·my/ (mĕ-tas″tah-sek´tah-me) excision of one or more metastases.

metastasectomy

The surgical excision of one or more foci of metastatic malignancy. Because lymphoproliferative neoplasms (e.g., lymphomas) are often ab initio multifocal and do not respond well to excision, metastasectomy is used for carcinoma, soft tissue sarcoma, melanoma and other solid tumours.
