[The pattern of mediastinal nodal involvement in lung cancer according to tumor-located lobe].

Abstract

To clarify the pathway of the metastases from each pulmonary lobe to mediastinal nodes, we examined the pattern of mediastinal nodal involvement in 462 resected pN2 non-small cell lung cancer. Carcinomas of the right upper lobe frequently involved #3 (78/133) and #4 (70/133) nodes, whereas those of the right middle or lower lobe frequently metastasized to… (More)
