Abstract:Pathologic complete response after cisplatin-enhanced radiotherapy cannot be satisfactorily assessed by clinical means. Surgery is required to obtain a reliable evaluation; however, right pneumonectomy should be contraindicated because of prohibitive risk. Although an effective local treatment can cure patients with advanced stage III disease, the addition of chemotherapy seems advisable to improve tumor relapse control.
