Abstract

  Pneumonectomy for non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after induction radio-chemotherapy (IT) has been associated with high peri-operative risk and its safety and efficacy is still debated. The aim of this retrospective study was to compare short and long-term results of pneumonectomy in patients treated with and without IT (radiotherapy plus chemotherapy) for NSCLC.
