OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken to demonstrate that limited pulmonary resection for peripheral small-sized lung cancer yields outcomes not inferior to those of lobectomy. METHODS During the 9-year period from 1992 to 2000, patients with cT1 N0 M0 peripheral non-small cell lung cancer whose maximum tumor diameter was 2 cm or less on diagnostic imaging and in whom lobectomy was determined to be feasible were treated with limited resection if the patient consented to the procedure and… CONTINUE READING
