Eur J Cardiothorac Surg. 2022 Apr 23:ezac249. doi: 10.1093/ejcts/ezac249. PMID: 35459942.

This score was designed to estimate the risk of conversion prior or during a VATS pulmonary
anatomical resection, based on patient preoperative characteristics.

This score determines 3 level of risk: low risk ( < 8%), intermediate risk (8-12%) and high risk ( > 12%).

cN0 : No regional node metastasis
cN1: Ipsilateral peribronchial and/or hilar nodes, and intrapulmonary nodes
cN2: Ipsilateral mediastinal and/or subcarinal nodes
cN3: Contralateral mediastinal or hilar; ipsilateral / contralateral scalene / supraclavicular
