Summary of "Long-term outcomes of upfront surgery in patients with resectable pathological N2 non-small-cell lung cancer."

Although the standard treatment for pathological N2 (pN2) non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients is definitive chemoradiation, surgery can be beneficial for resectable pN2 disease. Herein, we report the long-term clinical outcomes of upfront surgery followed by adjuvant treatment for selected patients with resectable pN2 disease.
