INTRODUCTION: In early-stage lung cancer (LC) patients, the best survival rates are achieved when the patient undergoes surgical resection. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is an important preoperative test because of its ability to detect disturbance in the oxygen transport system, which is, in turn, related to the development of postoperative complications.
