BACKGROUND Left upper division segmentectomy is one of the major pulmonary procedures; however, it is sometimes difficult to completely dissect interlobar lymph nodes. We attempted to clarify the prognostic importance of hilar and mediastinal nodes, especially of interlobar lymph nodes, in patients with primary non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) located in the left upper division. METHODS We retrospectively studied patients with primary left upper lobe NSCLC undergoing surgical pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
