Özet

There are four matters of uncertainty considered in this working group report, which are distilled into four clinical questions: (1) What is the evidence for the need for palpation of the lung in modern era of imaging? (2) Is there evidence of a difference in outcome for an open versus a closed approach? (3) Is there evidence of a difference in outcome for an initial policy of bilateral versus unilateral exploration? (4) In patients with known bilateral disease, is there a difference in outcome with a simultaneous versus a staged approach?
