Abstract

Objective. This study investigated the clinical aspects of surgically treated elderly patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Methods. A total of 726 patients including 102 elderly patients 75 or more years of age, who underwent surgery for NSCLC between April 1982 and December 1999 were retrospectively evaluated. Results. The percentage of patients who underwent limited operations or lymph node dissection of level 1 or less was significantly higher among elderly patients than among younger patients (3.5% vs 9.8%; p
