The surgical procedure still remains the leading one in a drastic treatment of lung carcinoma. The reduction of the postoperative lethality gives a chance of widening indications for a surgical treatment. The term “an expanded operation” reflects an expansion at the expense of mediastinal tissue and lymph nodes excision, and “a  combination operation” means resections of neighboring to lung anatomic lumps. The necessity of a complete mediastinal tissue and lymph nodes ablation, both from principal considerations and forcedly, is proved by studying lymphogenic metastasis staging.
