A Phase III Randomized Trial of Lobectomy Versus Sublobar Resection for Small (≤ 2 cm) Peripheral Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
RATIONALE: 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.
PURPOSE: 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.
