Endoscopic investigations for determining lung cancer stage

Endoscopic investigations for determining lung cancer stage

Voprosy Onkologii (Stsburg). 1978; 24(5): 62-64

Associated simultaneous mediastinoscopy and laparoscopy allows the detection of lung cancer metastases in lymph nodes of the anterior mediastinum and liver and the precise determination of tumor stage. The procedure is well tolerated by patients. One hundred examinations showed metastases in mediastinal lymph nodes in 27 cases; and in the liver in 7. No complications were noted. Metastases were most frequently found in patients with undifferentiated lung cancer. Hepatic 198Au scanning was performed in 30 patients. Laparoscopic data correlated well with scannographic findings.
