BACKGROUND AND AIM:The authors report the findings of a retrospective study made of 150 cases of bronchogenic non-small-cell carcinoma at stage IIIA.METHODS:Of the 150 patients treated 130 were male and 20 female. The mean age of the population examined was 55, with a minimum of 28 and maximum of 76. The techniques of exeresis used were pneumonectomy in 70 cases (33.3%) (simple in 50 cases--33.3% and intrapericardial ligation of pulmonary vessels in 20--13.3%), lobectomy in 61 cases (40.6%), lobectomy with associated atypical resection in 9 cases (6%), atypical resection in 6 patients (4%) and bilobectomy in 4 (2.6%).RESULTS:The 5-year survival rate was 16.9%. It was also found that the 5-year survival rate was 20.7% higher for epidermoid carcinoma compared to other histiotypes. The technique used also influenced survival and subjects undergoing pneumonectomy presented a 5-year survival of 29.7% compared to 26.8% for lobectomies associated with atypical resection.CONCLUSION:Surgery of bronchogenic carcinoma at stage IIIA has not obtained promising results in terms of survival. However, no other alternative treatment permits an average 5-year survival rate of 15% to be achieved.
