The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) recently proposed a change in the staging system for N2, based on the metastatic station number: N2a1 (a single metastatic station with no hilar involvement), N2a2 (a single metastatic station with hilar involvement) and N2b (multiple metastatic stations). The aim of our study was to validate the IASLC proposal in a cohort of patients with pathological N2 disease.

Abstract

The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) recently proposed a change in the staging system for N2, based on the metastatic station number: N2a1 (a single metastatic station with no hilar involvement), N2a2 (a single metastatic station with hilar involvement) and N2b (multiple metastatic stations). The aim of our study was to validate the IASLC proposal in a cohort of patients with pathological N2 disease.
