Comparison of Different Types of Surgery in Treating Patients With Stage IA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


A Phase III Randomized Trial of Lobectomy Versus Sublobar Resection for Small (= 2 CM) Peripheral Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


Wedge resection or segmentectomy may be less invasive types of surgery than lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. It is not yet known whether wedge resection or segmentectomy are more effective than lobectomy in treating stage IA non-small cell lung cancer.


This randomized phase III trial is studying different types of surgery to compare how well they work in treating patients with stage IA non-small cell lung cancer.
