Abstract

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with invasion of mediastinal structures is now classified as stage IIIA or IIIB according to N stages, and has been considered a surgically unfavorable category. However, in a selected group of these patients, better results have been reported after surgical resection compared with the non-surgical group. The aim of this study is to evaluate the role of surgical resection in treatment of mediastinal T4 NSCLC and risk factors that need to be considered.
