INTRODUCTION Patients with stage IV metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are generally not considered for surgery due to their poor median survival ranging from 4 to 11 months. However published results suggested that carefully selected patients with oligometastatic disease may benefit from resection of both the primary and metastatic sites in a multidisciplinary treatment approach. The aim of the study was to analyze and detect prognostic factors in surgically treated patients with… CONTINUE READING
