Özet

Aim: Lung cancer has become a global health problem today. Both patients and physicians prefer oncologic treatment approaches rather than surgery in T3 and T4 lung cancers in the geriatric age group. The objective of this study was to assess the long-term survival outcomes of patients aged 70 years and older, who underwent chest wall resection due to non-small cell lung cancer, and the prognostic factors affecting morbidity.
