OA07.06 - In Early-Stage Lung Adenocarcinomas, Survival by Tumor Size (T) is Further Stratified by Tumor Spread through Air Spaces (ID 5905)
14:20 - 15:50 | Author(s): M. Bott
We investigated whether tumor spread through air spaces (STAS) further stratifies survival beyond tumor size, T-descriptor independent of resection type (lobectomy or limited resection) and surgical margin.
In patients with pT1a-T2bN0M0 lung adenocarcinomas (LADC, n=1399), tumor size, distance of STAS from the tumor, type of resection, surgical margin were evaluated. The patients with small (≤2cm) tumors were divided into STAS(-) (n=561) and STAS(+) (n=307) and their cumulative incidence of recurrence (CIR), and lung cancer-specific death (CID) were compared with patients with larger tumors (2-3cm, n=299) by use of competing risk analysis.
Of 1399 tumors, 521 (37%) were STAS(+). Compared to STAS(-), recurrence rates were higher with STAS(+) tumors even when the margin is ≥tumor size (Figure 1). In patients with ≤2cm STAS(+) tumors, CIR and CID are higher than in patients with larger (2-3cm) tumors (Figure 2). The poor prognostic influence of STAS(+) was evident even when analyzed by the procedure or recurrence pattern (Figure 2 table).
STAS further stratifies survival beyond tumor size, T-descriptor in early-stage (pT1a-2b) lung adenocarcinoma based on the higher prognostic potential for recurrence and lung cancer-specific death independent of the type of resection or margin. Figure 1 Figure 2
