abstract

  • STAS was present in one-third of resected lung SCCs. In competing risks analysis in a cohort in which three-fourths of the patients were elderly, STAS was associated with lung cancer-specific outcomes. Our findings suggest that STAS is one of the most prognostically significant histologic findings in lung SCC.
