A prospective multicenter phase II trial to evaluate the survival outcomes of percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for patients with stage IA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), ineligible for surgery. Patients with a biopsy-proven stage IA NSCLC, staging established by a positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT), were eligible. The primary objective was to evaluate the local control of RFA at 1-year. Secondary objectives were 1- and 3-year overall survival (OS), 3-year local control, lung function (prior to and 3 months after RFA) and quality of life (prior to and 1 month after RFA). Of the 42 patients (mean age 71.7 y) that were enrolled at six French cancer centers, 32 were eligible and assessable. Twenty-seven patients did not recur at 1 year corresponding to a local control rate of 84.38% (95% CI, [67.21-95.72]). The local control rate at 3 years was 81.25% (95% CI, [54.35-95.95]). The OS rate was 91.67% (95% CI, [77.53-98.25]) at 1 year and 58.33% (95% CI, [40.76-74.49]) at 3
A pneumonectomy (or pneumectomy) is a surgical procedure to remove a lung. Removal of just one lobe of the lung is specifically referred to as a lobectomy, and that of a segment of the lung as a wedge resection (or segmentectomy). The most common reason for a pneumonectomy is to remove tumourous tissue arising from lung cancer. In the days prior to the use of antibiotics in tuberculosis treatment, tuberculosis was sometimes treated surgically by pneumonectomy. The operation will reduce the respiratory capacity of the patient; before conducting a pneumonectomy, the surgeon will evaluate the ability of the patient to function after the lung tissue is removed. After the operation, patients are often given an incentive spirometer to help exercise their remaining lung and to improve breathing function. A rib or two is sometimes removed to allow the surgeon better access to the lung. There are two types of pneumonectomy: Simple pneumonectomy: removal of just the affected lung Extrapleural ...
Risk factors for the development of BPF after pneumonectomy include anatomic, technical, and patient factors (Table 82-1).4,5 Right pneumonectomy is associated with a fourfold to fivefold higher incidence of BPF than left pneumonectomy, likely related to anatomic differences between the right and left mainstem bronchi.6 A right pneumonectomy stump has minimal mediastinal coverage of the bronchial stump compared with a left-sided stump, which retracts underneath the aorta into the mediastinum when properly fashioned (Fig. 82-1). The right mainstem bronchus is also oriented much more vertically than the left, which permits secretions to pool in the bronchial stump. Finally, the vascular supply to the left mainstem bronchus is augmented by direct vascular branches as the bronchus passes behind the aorta. The blood supply on the right travels from the trachea via local branches in the subcarinal space, which are often disrupted by dissection and lymph node removal. ...
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, randomized study. Patients are stratified according to tumor size (, 1 cm vs 1-1.5 cm vs , 1.5-2.0 cm) (based on the maximum dimension determined from the preoperative CT scan), histology (squamous cell carcinoma vs adenocarcinoma vs other), and smoking status (never smoked [smoked , 100 cigarettes over lifetime] vs former smoker [smoked , 100 cigarettes AND quit ≥ 1 year ago] vs current smoker [quit , 1 year ago or currently smokes]). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. For more information, please see the Arms section.. Primary Objective:. To determine whether DFS after sublobar resection (segmentectomy or wedge) is non-inferior to that after lobectomy in patients with small peripheral (≤ 2 cm) NSCLC.. Secondary Objectives:. ...

Method. Patients must undergo proper evaluation of resectability and operability according to international guidelines. The authors routinely perform a radical lymphadenectomy.. Right Pneumonectomy. Surgery was performed through a single 4.0 cm incision in the fifth intercostal space. Once resectability was confirmed, the authors dissected the pulmonary hilum. The anterior trunk of the MPA was freed and divided using a vascular load. This allowed for safe dissection of the right upper lobe vein. Once this vein was transected, the MPA was exposed, allowing a secure dissection. The only structure behind the artery was the airway, so it was safe to encircle and staple it. Following this, the middle vein and the inferior vein are divided. The right main bronchus was the last structure to be transected using a bronchial load, with care taken to avoid leaving a long bronchial stump.. Left Pneumonectomy. The incision and initial evaluation were performed as described for a right pneumonectomy. The ...

Resection of pulmonary recurrences after pneumonectomy for metastases is exceptional. Nevertheless, in carefully selected patients surgery on the residual lung might be successfully performed. From January 1987 to February 1996, 5 patients underwent metastasectomy on single lung after pneumonectomy performed for the same metastatic disease. There were 3 male and 2 female with a mean age of 38 years at the time of surgery on single lung. All patients had a FEV 1 > 40%. One patient (n° 1) had 2 consecutive operations (wedge resections) on the right lower lobe followed 17 months later by right inferior lobectomy for metastases of soft tissue sarcoma. Three patients had only an operation on the residual lung (patient n° 2 had 2 wedge resections for carcinoma; patient n° 3 had 7 wedge resections for carcinoma; patient n° 4 had 6 wedge resections for osteogenic sarcoma). The last patient (n° 5) had 2 wedge resections on the right upper lobe and a large wedge resection on the right lower lobe for ...
We report a patient with a large pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma (PPC) in the left upper lobe greater than 10 cm in diameter. She underwent left upper lobectomy with mediastinal lymph node dissection and concomitant resection of the left phrenic nerve, vagus nerve and pericardium. She received adjuvant chemotherapy, but had tumor recurrence. We then performed left completion pneumonectomy, but could not remove the tumor completely because of rapid tumor invasion to the left atrium. Urgent surgery should be considered for recurrent resectable PPC.
A major new study using data from the National Cancer Data Base details the impact of annual hospital volume on 30- and 90-day mortality rates. Investigators found that major lung surgery has become progressively safer over the last few decades, although higher death rates at low-volume hospitals and an unexpected increase in mortality at 90 days compared to 30 days were observed. The study further suggests that choosing a center that performs major lung surgery regularly can have a strong impact on survival.
Threeteen patients of lung cancer of center type underwent carinal resections in our department from January 1985 to December 1996. There were 3 patients, T3N2M0 and 10 patients, T4N2M0. Palliative resections were performed for 3 patients and radical resections, for 10 patients. Carinal resection with right pneumonectomy was done in 3 patients, part carinal resection with right pneumonectomy 6 patients, part carinal resection with left pneumonectomy 1 case, and part carinal resection with right sleeve upper and middle lobectomy 3 patients. There were no operative complications and deaths. The 3-year survival rate was 54% and the 5-year survival rates, 30%. One patient has survived for 8 years. The satisfied results of operative therapy were followed when no lymph node metastesis in mediastinum and mass could be resected.

For operable patients with NSCLC in whom tumour growth is limited to one lobe, lobectomy is the treatment of choice. Intentionally curative radiotherapy is a good alternative if the surgical risk is determined to be (too) high.. Patients in whom lung function is so limited that lobectomy is not possible may be considered for segment resection (preferred) or wedge excision if complete resection using this method is possible.. In principle, if the lung tumour has spread from one lobe to another, a lobectomy plus a wedge resection of the other lobe should be performed. For central tumours, bilobectomy or pneumonectomy may be an option.. If a conventional lobectomy is not possible due to tumour growth up to or past the level of the bronchial ostium, a sleeve lobectomy is advisable because complete resection is possible with this technique even when lung function precludes pneumonectomy.. A sleeve resection of the pulmonary artery should be performed only if the patient cannot tolerate pneumonectomy ...
any of the measures taken to treat a disease. Unproven therapy is any therapy that has not been scientifically tested and approved. Use of an unproven therapy instead of standard (proven) therapy is called alternative therapy. Some alternative therapies have dangerous or even life-threatening side effects. For others, the main danger is that a patient may lose the opportunity to benefit from standard therapy. Complementary therapy, on the other hand, refers to therapies used in addition to standard therapy. Some complementary therapies may help relieve certain symptoms of cancer, relieve side effects of standard cancer therapy, or improve a patients sense of well-being. The ACS recommends that patients considering use of any alternative or complementary therapy discuss this with their health care team ...

A pneumonectomy consists of the surgical removal of a lung. It is a major medical procedure that aims to reduce or even completely remove the presence of diseases caused by lung cancer or pleural mesothelioma.
This eMedTV resource explains in detail what happens during a pneumonectomy surgery and discusses what happens afterwards. The surgery typically involves many steps, such as anesthesia, breathing tubes and catheters, and opening the rib cage.
Lung cancer surgery can involve removing a portion of the lung or the entire lung. An operation to remove the lung cancer and a small portion of healthy tissue is called a wedge resection. Removing a larger area of the lung is called segmental resection. Surgery to remove one of the lungs five lobes is called lobectomy. Removing an entire lung is called pneumonectomy.. ...

Objectives: Pulmonary function tests are important in assessing eligibility for lung resection surgery. The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence and type of pulmonary dysfunction in patients referred for lung resection. We also studied how the limit of normal (80%predicted versus lower limit of normal (LLN) as -1.645SD) affected the incidence of functional disorders. Methods and material: Retrospective analysis of lung function tests, spirometry, lung volumes, transfer factor for CO (TL,CO) in 493 consecutive patients referred for resectional surgery. Results: Spirometry was within the normal range in 255 (51.7%) patients. Airway obstruction was diagnosed in 210 (42.6%), and a restrictive pattern in 28 (5.7%) patients. FEV1 ,LLN occurred in 154 (31%), and FEV1,80%pred. in 223 (45%) patients. In 275 (56.6%) cases TL,CO was ,LLN, and in 350 (72%) patients ,80%pred. In 151 (31%) cases with FEV1 within the normal range TL,CO was reduced. FEV1 or TL,CO was ,LLN in 302 (62%) patients, and ...

We saw the doctor yesterday as a follow-up for the PET and CT Scans done on 10/1. The scans show a small nodule (4mm) in the lower right lung. This nodule is too small to determine if it is cancer or not. It could be that the nodule is related to congestion / inflamation or it may be another solitary tumor. The tumor that was surgically removed on 6/1/2012 was also in the lower right lung. That nodule was 14mm when it was first detected and 18mm when it was removed.. The prognosis for this nodule is to watch it closely - I will receive another CT scan in six weeks. If that CT scan shows growth in the nodule the recommendation will be another lung resection surgery to remove the nodule and determine if it is cancer or not. If it is from congestion / inflamation it will likely not be present in another six weeks. If the nodule turns out to be cancer I will stop the FolFox chemo treatments and a new treatment plan will be developed. ...

Lung. Surgeons who altered the treatment of lung cancer by performing lobectomy, pneumonectomy, or segmental resection of the lung received considerable recognition. Hugh Davies performed the first lobectomy in 1912 using anatomic dissection ( 7, 8). In reporting the results of Davies operation, Naef wrote, "If his patient had not died 28 days after the operation, he would have preceded Evarts Grahams first lung resection by 21 years" ( 8). Although Davies also received acclaim for being "… the earliest advocate of interdisciplinary teamwork in thoracic medicine" ( 8), his publication provides no information related to lung cancer other than a technical description of how he performed the operation. A report by Harold Brunn of a single cancer patient who had a one-stage lobectomy provides information only about an operative technique he used ( 9).. Although Rudolph Nissen was credited with performing the first total pneumonectomy in 1931 ( 10), he was recognized for an operation that ...

For example, if the preoperative FEV1 is 1.8 litres and a right pneumonectomy is to be done, assuming uniform contributions to FEV1 from all subsegments, the predicted post-operative FEV1 is: FEV1 ppo = (20 / 42) * 1.8 = 0.86 litres, as there will be 20 subsegments left after the 22 subsegments in the right lobe have been removed. The calculations for other predicted post-operative values (such as DLCO and VO 2 max) are similarly calculated. It would seem wise to always relate values to the normal prediction for that individual rather than nominating blanket cut-off values such as a predicted FEV1 of "under 1.0 litres". For practical application of a similar (but not identical) formula, see the paper by Kearney et al (Chest 1994, 105(3) 753-9), where multivariate analysis showed only predicted FEV1 as a significant independent predictor of morbidity. The death rate in this study was an impressively low 1%. Of interest is that in this study age, gender, smoking history, hypercarbia, desaturation ...

That is my wifes actual chest X-ray last week when she was first admitted. Almost the entire right upper lung (thats on the left of the picture, by the way) is involved with some kind of evil nastiness. What you cant see (that the CT scan showed) is that in addition to a very dense consolidation of her entire right upper lobe, she had areas of pneumonia in the left upper lobe, lower lobe, and lingula as well. That explains why she was having fevers, chills, and a nearly-constant cough. And THAT is what she was living with while still going to work, making dinner, doing laundry, and taking care of her family ...

Lung Volume Reduction Surgery for emphysema has evolved over the last two decades since the original description by Brantigan [11]. Cooper and colleagues popularised the use of stapled excision of the emphysematous lung with good outcomes [1]. This was followed by a number of groups pursuing varied selection criteria and techniques with mixed results [4, 12-14]. However, the selection criteria and benefits of LVRS in end stage emphysema has been established in the National Emphysema Treatment Trial [2] with durable long term results in select group of patients [15].. One of the major complications of stapled LVRS is prolonged air leak which occurs in 50-90% of the patients [3]. A number of adjuncts to prevent air leak have been advocated which include bovine pericardium, Gore-Tex or autologous pleura [3, 6]. The buttressing of the staple line has been shown to reduce the duration of air leak and time to chest drain removal [6]. In our centre, the standard approach to Lung Volume Reduction ...
abstract = "Study objectives: In 1996, researchers in Sweden initiated a collaborative randomized study comparing lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) and physical training with physical training alone. The primary end point was health status; secondary end points included survival and physiologic measurements. Design: After an initial 6-week physical training program, researchers patients were randomized to either LVRS (surgical group [SG]) with continued training for 3 months, or to continued training alone (training group [TG]) for 1 year. Setting: All seven thoracic surgery centers in Sweden. Patients: All patients in Sweden with severe emphysema fulfilling inclusion criteria for LVRS. Interventions: Patients randomized to surgery underwent a median sternotomy, except for a few patients in whom thoracotomy or video-assisted thoracoscopy were performed. In the TG, supervised physical training continued for 1 year; in the SG, supervised physical training continued for 3 months ...
