BACKGROUND The appropriate use of sublobar resection versus lobectomy for stage I non-small cell lung cancer continues to be debated. A long-term analysis of the outcomes of these resections for stage I non-small cell lung cancer in a high-volume tertiary referral university hospital center was performed. METHODS The outcomes of all stage I non-small cell lung cancer patients (n = 784) undergoing resection were analyzed from our lung cancer registry from 1990 to 2003. Lobectomy was the… CONTINUE READING
