This meta-analysis of published studies evaluated outcomes of multimodality therapy including resection for superior sulcus NSCLC invading the spine.  134 articles were evaluated, which included 135 patients.  63% had induction therapy, and all underwent en bloc resection.  52% had adjuvant therapy.  Survival at 3,5, and 10 years was 57%, 42%, and 27%.  R0 resection was a predictor of survival.
