BACKGROUND: The value of maximum standard uptake value (SUVmax) was overlooked in current studies comparing stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) versus surgery for stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Herein, we aimed to compare the 3-year outcomes based on patients for whom SUVmax were available, and to explore the role of SUVmax in clinical decision-making. METHODS: From January 2010 to June 2016, data of eligible patients were collected. Patient variables and clinical outcomes were compared in both unmatched and matched groups using propensity score matching (PSM)...

Metastatic lung cancer has long been considered incurable, with the goal of treatment being palliation. However, a clinically meaningful number of these patients with limited metastases (approximately 25%) are living long term after definitive treatment to all sites of active disease. These patients with so-called oligometastatic disease likely represent a distinct clinical group who may possess a more indolent biology compared with their more widely metastatic counterparts. Hellman and Weichselbaum proposed the existence of the oligometastatic state, on the basis of the spectrum theory of cancer spread...

BACKGROUND: There is debate regarding the use of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) or surgery for patients with early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This meta-analysis compared the clinical efficacy of SABR and lobectomy in stage I NSCLC patients. METHODS: An online search identified eight eligible articles (including 2 trials and 7 cohort studies) for inclusion. The odds ratio (OR) was used as a summary statistic. Overall survival (OS), cause-specific survival (CSS), and recurrence-free survival (RFS) were selected to calculate ORs with 95% confidence intervals (CI)...

Background: Previous study of ours showed that advanced lung cancer inflammation index (ALI) and C-reactive protein (CRP) are independent significant prognostic factors in operable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Since both ALI and CRP are markers of inflammation, the aim of this study was to examine whether the combination of ALI and CRP is a prognostic indicator of resected NSCLC or not. Methods: Three hundred forty-one NSCLC patients who underwent surgery at our institution between 2008 and 2012 were included...

Lung cancer management that is individualized for age, comorbidities, cancer type, cancer stage, and patient preference has long been a cornerstone of management. New to this realm of individualized management are the emerging biologic therapies, immunotherapies, and targeted therapies for non-small-cell lung cancer provided by advances in genetics and molecular medicine. These techniques have led to a new field of precision medicine based on the unique molecular characteristics of a specific patient and the specific cancer...

Background: Studies have reported that up to 8% of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC) involve multiple lesions; no detailed study has assessed the prognosis of early synchronous multiple primary non-small cell lung cancer (SMPNSCLC) (T1N0M0, T2aN0M0). We aimed to assess the spiral CT manifestations of SMPNSCLC during stage I and evaluate the effect of TNM staging with the 7th and 8th editions on the prognosis. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the data of patients who were examined, operated, and pathologically confirmed as having NSCLC from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2010, and were followed-up for 5 years...

REVIEW
Ju Hwan Cho
Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. There are 2 major subtypes of lung cancer, non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). Studies show that NSCLC is the more prevalent type of lung cancer that accounts for approximately 80%-85% of cases. Although, various treatment methods, such as chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation therapy have been used to treat lung cancer patients, there is an emergent need to develop more effective approaches to deal with advanced stages of tumors...

BACKGROUND: Impairment of exercise capacity remains a common adverse effect of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) survivors after surgery. Previous research has suggested that Tai Chi Chuan (TCC) offers an exercise capacity benefit in several types of cancers. This is a randomized trial to investigate the efficacy and safety of TCC in postoperative NSCLC patients over an observation period of 3 months and a 9-month follow-up. METHODS/DESIGN: Using a prospective, one center and randomized design, 120 subjects with histologically confirmed stage I-IIIA NSCLC following complete surgical resection will potentially be eligible for this trial...

BACKGROUND: It is a big topic for general thoracic surgery whether still curability can be obtained by limited resection for peripheral small-sized nodules of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in the current era of frequent computed tomography (CT) use. Accumulation of information on problematic cases would be meaningful for surgeons to select better surgical procedures. CASE PRESENTATION: A 69-year-old man was pointed out an enlarged 2.1-cm solid nodule on the edge of staple line of the residual right upper lobe by chest CT...

BACKGROUND: Compared to the pulmonary lobe, the anatomical structure of the pulmonary segment is relatively complex and prone to variation, thus the risk and difficulty of segmentectomy is increased. We compared three-dimensional computed tomography bronchography and angiography (3D-CTBA) combined with 3D video-assisted thoracic surgery (3D-VATS) to perform segmentectomy to conventional two-dimensional (2D)-VATS for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the data of randomly selected patients who underwent 3D-CTBA combined with 3D-VATS (3D-CTBA-VATS) or 2D-VATS at the Department of Thoracic Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University Hospital, from January 2014 to May 2017...
