Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The results of resecting incurable lung cancer in an effort to improve the terminal course of a small number of patients are briefly presented. This is not a comparative study and no inferences or conclusions are justified regarding the choice of this form of therapy as palliation in preference to other forms of palliative therapy; however we do believe that the terminal course of the patient with lung cancer is beneficially effected by removal of the primary tumor whenever this is technically feasible.
