OA15.02 - Survival Outcomes in Sublobar Resection for Clinical T1N0M0 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Wedge Resection or Segmentectomy (ID 4710)
16:00 - 17:30 | Author(s): A. Ito
Lobectomy remains the standard treatment for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).In practice, however, sublobar resection has been selectively offered for patients with clinical Stage IA NSCLC as curative treatment. To seek optimal surgical procedure for early stage lung cancer, we carried out retrospective analyses of 2122 patients who had undergone limited resection for c-T1N0M0 NSCLC from 26 institutions of Japanese association for chest surgery.
A total of 1963 patients with lobectomy tolerance were eligible for survival analysis. We retrospectively categorized patients of these nodules on numbers of criteria for CT findings; scores were added according to the dominance of ground glass appearance (GGA); >75% = 0, <75% =1, and size of tumor; T1a =0, T1b =1. Statistical analyses were carried out using propensity-matching and Kaplan-Myer with log-rank testing.
We analyzed 1:1 matched 731 patients for segmentectomy and wedge resection with propensity matching.The overall survival (OS) for score 0 group was 90.2% in segmentectomy (n=419) and 94.7% in wedge resection (n=451) (p=0.0351). The disease free survival (DFS) for score 0 group was 90.2% in segmentectomy and 92.7% in wedge resection (p=0.0645). The OS for score 1 group was 93.6% in segmentectomy (n=278) and 80.4% in wedge resection (n=246)(P<0.001)(Fig. 1). The DFS for score 1 group is 94.1% in segmentectomy and 75.3% in wedge resection (P<0.001). The OS for scores 2 was 79.1% in segmentectomy (n=34) and 69.2% in wedge resection (n=34) (p=0.109). The DFS for score 2 group was 87.0% in segmentectomy and 58.1% in wedge resection (p=0.581). Figure 1
This study showed that GGA dominant T1a may be treated by wedge resection where possible. The consolidation dominant T1b did not benefit from sublobar resection. In patients with GGA dominant T1b or consolidation dominant T1a, anatomical segmentectomy with curative intension may provide better prognosis.
