There are few prognostic factors for patients with T1 N0 M0 pulmonary conventional and bronchioloalveolar adenocarcinomas (BACs), despite a 25% to 35% failure rate. To identify prognostic factors related to disease-free survival, we retrospectively studied the histologic features of 218 cases of T1 NO MO adenocarcinomas. The mean overall follow-up was 5.9 years, and the 5-year disease-free survival was 72%; 148 patients (67.9%) were disease-free, and in 57 (26.1%), nonpulmonary metastases… CONTINUE READING
