Abstract: We report therapeutic results of bilateral mediastinal lymph nodes dissection through median sternotomy in 8 cases. The prognosis was poor in N3 cases by pathological diagnosis. The cases suspected to have contralateral mediastinal lymph node metastasis by preoperative imaging diagnosis may include N2. Then, appropriate preoperative diagnosis by mediastinoscopy, etc. is important. However, mediastinoscopy can not be complete, and so it is an option to conduct bilateral dissection positively in the who may be N3. Cytobiological prognosis evaluation was not useful in these patients of advanced cancer.
