Complete surgical resection of stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is at times impossible. Adjuvant radiation therapy is required to sterilize the residual tumor. This study is to investigate the safety, reproducibility, and effectiveness of intraoperative I-125 or Pd-103 Gelfoam plaque implant technique as an adjuvant treatment for resected stage III NSCLC with positive surgical margin. Between 1989 and 1993, 12 patients with stage III NSCLC received intraoperative lung implant with… CONTINUE READING
