OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy between SBRT and surgery based on the Propensity-Matched Analysis. METHODS Publications on comparison SBRT and Surgery for early stage non- small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) from 2011 to 2017 were collected. Propensity score matching was used to achieve comparable treatment hazard ratios of the… CONTINUE READING
