Impact of Sublobar Resection on Pulmonary Function: Long-Term Results from American College of Surgeons Oncology Group Z4032 (Alliance).


BACKGROUND Sublobar resection (SR) in high-risk operable patients may result in a long-term decrease in pulmonary function. We previously reported 3-month pulmonary function outcomes from a randomized phase III study of SR alone compared with SR with brachytherapy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. We now report long-term pulmonary function after… (More)
