Abstract

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States, and Kentucky has the highest age-adjusted lung cancer rate in the country. The University of Kentucky serves as a major cancer treatment center. Lobectomy is the standard therapy for non-small-cell lung cancer, whereas sublobar resection remains an option for selected patients. This study investigated outcomes in patients having lobectomy compared with sublobar resection in this population with a high prevalence and incidence of lung cancer.
