abstract

  • If systematic and thorough presection sampling of the mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes is negative, mediastinal lymph node dissection does not improve survival in patients with early stage non-small cell lung cancer, but these results are not generalizable to patients staged radiographically or those with higher stage tumors.
