abstract

  • VPI stratifies prognosis in patients with lung ADC 2 to 3 cm but not in those with tumors ≤ 2 cm. Our proposed regrouping of a new stage IB better stratifies patients with poor prognosis, similar to published outcomes in patients with stage II disease, who may benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy.
