Interstitial implantation of I125 by thoracotomy represents a further therapeutic procedure for lung cancer. Two cases recently treated by this procedure are reported. The first case concerns a right apical carcinoma of the lung where interstitial implantation of I125 seeds was carried out in the unresectable apical neoplastic residue, after superior lobectomy. The second case concerns a smaller tumor unresectable due to the severely impaired respiratory function. Main indications to the procedure are reported.
