Abstract

Carinal resection and reconstruction remains a challenging surgical procedure and the rather poor surgical outcomes for patients graded as N2 or higher, according to nodal involvement points to the fact that better pre-operative management is required in terms of tumor grading, induction chemotherapy and radiotherapy to decrease the risks associated with metastatic mediastinal nodal status.
