Predicting death from surgery for lung cancer: a comparison of two scoring systems in two European countries
O'Dowd, Emma L. and Lüchtenborg, Margreet and Baldwin, David R. and McKeever, Tricia M. and Powell, Helen A. and Møller, Henrik and Jakobsen, Erik and Hubbard, Richard B. (2016) Predicting death from surgery for lung cancer: a comparison of two scoring systems in two European countries. Lung Cancer, 95 . pp. 88-93. ISSN 0169-5002
Objectives: Current British guidelines advocate the use of risk prediction scores such as Thoracoscore to estimate mortality prior to radical surgery for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A recent publication used the National Lung Cancer Audit (NLCA) to produce a score to predict 90 day mortality (NLCA score). The aim of this study is to validate the NLCA score, and compare its performance with Thoracoscore.
