Sublobar Resection Versus Definitive Radiation in Patients With Stage IA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Annals of Thoracic Surgery, 08/01/2012
Fernandez FG et al. – Sublobar resection without lymph node sampling appears to be superior to radiotherapy for clinical stage IA non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). For patients with prohibitive risk for lobectomy, sublobar resection may be preferable to radiotherapy. Radiotherapy results in current and future patients are likely to be better.
