Small lung cancers frequently have been detected in mass screening by computed tomography (CT) in recent years. Suitability of limited resection for these small lung cancers remains controversial. One hundred patients who underwent sublobular limited resection (wedge resection or segmentectomy) for lung cancer in our hospital from 1981 to 2002 were analyzed retrospectively. From CT findings, tumors were classified into two groups; pure ground-glass opacity (PGGO) and non-PGGO. Patients included… CONTINUE READING
