The authors explored the optimal extent of LN resection for T1aN0 carcinoid tumors undergoing lung resection using the National Cancer Data Base. Twenty-five percent of patients had no nodes evaluated.  Four percent of patients were upstaged based on node status.  Survival was similar comparing lobectomy to sublobar resection.
