Özet

Background Lung cancer is a typical disease of elderly patients. While there are many publications in the literature on factors affecting survival, there is still no consensus on the survival impact of lymph node dissection. Our objective in this study was to evaluate prognostic factors influencing rates of complications, mortality, and survival in geriatric patients who underwent surgery for non-small cell lung cancer.
