BACKGROUND Although several reports have recently demonstrated that segmentectomy for small-sized N0 lung cancer leads to recurrence and survival rates equivalent to those associated with lobectomy, controversy regarding the postoperative functional advantage in the former over the latter still persists. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the degree of postoperative functional loss in patients undergoing segmentectomy or lobectomy for lung cancer. METHODS We analyzed patients able to… CONTINUE READING
