Objective: Although, anatomical resection of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) following neoadjuvant therapy is still controversial, it is a widely accepted approach for thoracic surgery practice. The aim of this study is to briefly evaluate clinical results, long term survival, and factors affecting survival of the patients with locally advanced NSCLC, pancoast tumour and lung cancer with solitary brain metastasis, who have been operated at our institution following neoadjuvant therapy.
