@FrostyHammer Hmm I never analyzed the protocol for 0617. You're saying that if there were ipsi level 2 LNs in a definitive setting, people are treating just the primary and the involved LN? People would spare ipsi hilum? and ipsi level 4? B/c I can say that I would not at all plan to do that in my practice and have never seen that from the various lung attendings I've worked under.
Is anyone else doing that for their definitive NSCLCs?
I was under the impression that 'ENI' was defined as treating beyond the extent of disease - meaning that if patient had ipsi level 4 LN, then with ENI you would cover ipsi level II and say contralateral 4 and station 7 or something.
Interesting. Thanks for the ongoing discussion.
I have not heard of that in almost 10 years. Is this really the practice where you are at? Interesting. NCCN does not say one way or the other - as far as ENI or not. Dealer's choice, appears.
