PURPOSE: This study aimed to determine the significance of preoperative diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO) in surgical outcomes in clinical stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients.
METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of training and validation cohorts that underwent radical resection (R0) for clinical stage I NSCLC between January 2009 and December 2014 at two independent institutions. Each complication was classified according to the Clavien-Dindo classification of surgical complications. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was performed to identify factors that could predict the incidence of postoperative complications. Several potential prognostic factors were analyzed with respect to outcomes including overall survival (OS).
