Metastasis to subsegmental and segmental lymph nodes in patients resected for non-small cell lung cancer: prognostic impact.


BACKGROUND We investigated the prognostic significance of segmental and subsegmental (level 13 and 14) lymph nodes metastasis in patients with resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS The pattern of lymph nodal metastasis was analyzed in 124 patients with pN1 NSCLC. Long-term outcomes were compared for 390 pN0, 124 pN1, and 82 pN2 consecutive… (More)
