The great debate flashes: Surgery versus stereotactic body radiotherapy as the primary treatment of early-stage lung cancer


Weder, Walter; Moghanaki, Drew; Stiles, Brendon; Siva, Shankar; Rocco, Gaetano (2018). The great debate flashes: Surgery versus stereotactic body radiotherapy as the primary treatment of early-stage lung cancer. European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, 53(2):295-305.

Abstract

Stereotactic body radiotherapy is gaining favour as an alternative therapeutic modality to surgery for patients with early-stage lung cancer. An exponential increase of contributions in the literature has generated a bulk of discordant evidence supporting therapeutic choice for the treatment of fit and medically inoperable patients. This 'Great Debate Flashes' paper aims at producing an up-to-date, concise and user-friendly review of the arguments that surgeons and radiation oncologists bring forward in the discussions with patients and colleagues.
