Traditionally, pulmonary lobectomy has always been considered as the gold standard for the treatment of early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC); limited resections have been proposed in case of “compromised” patients, with relevant comorbidities. In the last years, the interest in anatomical segmentectomies among surgeons has been progressively growing, even for patients fit for lobectomy, in selected cases. In this article we debate the current trends in the treatment of early stage NSCLC around Europe.
