Abstract

We studied the surgical results in 31 patients with small sized but advanced lung cancer. Twenty-two patients had mediastinal lymph node metastasis, 6 had pulmonary metastasis, 3 had pleural dissemination. Histological type were adenocarcinoma in 21 patients, large cell carcinoma in 5 patients, small cell carcinoma in 4 patients. The 5-year survival rate in patients with mediastinal lymph node metastasis (pT1N2) was 24.1%. The 5-year survival rate in patients (pT1N2) for clinical N0, N1 was 34.6%, but no patient with clinical N2 disease survived more than 2 years after the operation. In the patients with pulmonary metastasis or pleural dissemination none survived more than 5 years after the operation.
