Abstract. The ipsilateral lobar lymph nodes (№12) are insufficiently explored group of lymph nodes, which are not subject for dissection and further study in the case of lung resection. This provision required the prospective study of the status of this group. A prospective study includes study (40 patients) and control (40 patients) group. According to the results of a prospective study the frequency of metastatic lesion of ipsilateral lobar lymph nodes is 35%. At the same time, at more than half of these lymph node lesions other groups of intrathoracic lymph nodes were intact (57%). According to the analysis of the study and control groups ipsilateral lobar lymph dissection has no effect on the course of the early postoperative period and the development of early postoperative complications. A prospective study reflects results from a previous retrospective study and confirms the necessity of the ipsilateral lymph dissection in the surgical treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.
Key words: non-small-cell cell lung cancer, ipsilateral lobar lymph nodes, lymph node dissection.
