The five-year survival rate of lung-cancer patients with left-sided N2 non-small-cell disease is worse than that for those with right-sided lesions and this is partly caused by inadequate nodal dissection due to anatomical limitations. To overcome the problem of performing nodal dissection in the left mediastinum, several modifications of the operative technique have been tried in the past 18 years. The survival rates of the patients treated by each procedure were retrospectively compared in… CONTINUE READING
