Optimal Delivery of Follow-up Care Following Pulmonary Lobectomy for Lung Cancer

[Lung Cancer: Targets and Therapy] In this research, a literature review identifies international guidelines associated with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) recurrence useful as remedies in postoperative follow-up.

Including Quality Measures In Treatment Regimens Increases Survival in Stage IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Including Quality Measures In Treatment Regimens Increases Survival in Stage IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

When more quality measures are incorporated into patient care, survival rates for patients with stage IIIA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) increase, but only 13% of eligible patients actually receive all 4 recommended quality measures.

Older Patients With Lung Cancer Experience High Survival After Surgery

Results from this study showed that 5-year survival for older patients after surgery for lung cancer is favorable. Based on these results, surgeons might be better equipped to individualize care for this older population.

Increased Risk of Noncancer Deaths Associated with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer

High doses of SBRT, particularly to the left atrium of the heart and the superior vena cava, are associated with a small but increased risk of death from noncancer causes in patients with early stage NSCLC.

VATS Associated With Less Post-op Pain, Better QoL for Stage 1 NSCLC

VATS Associated With Less Post-op Pain, Better QoL for Stage 1 NSCLC

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is associated with less postoperative pain and better quality of life than anterolateral thoracotomy for the first year of surgery in patients with stage I NSCLC.
