1.A Phase III Randomized Trial of Lobectomy Versus Sublobar Resection for Small (≤ 2 CM) Peripheral Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00499330
RATIONALE: Wedge resection or segmentectomy may be less invasive types of surgery than lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. It is not yet known whether wedge resection or segmentectomy are more effective than lobectomy in treating stage IA non-small cell lung cancer.
The study will compare the Disease Free Survival in the 2 groups.

2.Study to See if Microcoil Insertion Reduces the Rate of Open Thoracotomy for Removal of Lung Nodules
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01028417
A Randomized Controlled Trial To Determine If Thoracoscopic Resection Of Subcentimetre Lung Nodules After Localization Using Percutaneously Inserted Platinum Microcoils Under CT Guidance Reduces Rate Of Conversion To Open Thoracotomy From 50% To 10%.
