Publication Date: 2009-06-30
The systematic lymph dissection, a drastic treatment procedure in the surgical treatment of lung carcinoma, is declared to be an operative procedure helping to assess the true extent of a neoplastic [tumor] process. From the 300 operative interventions the 150 (50,0%) came to expanded operations which were followed by a systematic lymph dissection from principal considerations. The other 150 (50,0%) patients were operated typically without any systematic mediastinal lymph dissection. The general five-year probability of survival (equal to 30%), while the postoperative lethality is equal to 6,7%, speaks for a surgical assistance of a good quality in the clinical hospital. To present day 254 (85,0% from the 300) patients have been watched over.
