Abstract

Compared with surgical treatment the combined treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer accompanied by post-operative radiotherapy in the mode of hypofractionation from 3 Gy to SOD-36-39 Gy (EQD2 = 43,2-46,8 Gy) allowed statistically significant increasing a 5- and 10-year overall and disease-specific survival in patients with metastases to regional lymph nodes (pN1-2). The increase of overall and disease-specific survival was also observed in patients older than 60 years with the worst initial status (70-80 by the Karnofsky scale), II stage of disease, peripheral cancer and adenocarcinoma however for these groups survival differences did not reach a statistically significant level. The presented method of postoperative irradiation did not have severe toxicity and did not lead to a decrease in survival of elderly and functionally debilitated patients.
