Advances in lung cancer surgery: the role of segmentectomy in early-stage management.

INTRODUCTION: The evolving landscape of surgical interventions for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) necessitates a reassessment of the traditional gold standard of lobectomy versus emerging sublobar resections, prompting this critical narrative review.

AREAS COVERED: This review encompasses recent randomized controlled trials, notably JCOG0802/WJOG4607L and CALGB140503, comparing lobectomy and sublobar resections for early-stage NSCLC, focusing on tumor size and recurrence rates. It also discusses the importance of individualized decision-making, future research avenues, and technological advancements in lung cancer surgery.

EXPERT OPINION: In this rapidly evolving field, sublobar resections emerge as a viable alternative to lobectomy for tumors smaller than 2 cm in early-stage NSCLC, necessitating precise patient selection and ongoing technological advancements to optimize outcomes.
