Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer: Conclusion

Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer: Conclusion

The results, including hospital deaths from bronchoplasty, lobectomy, and pneumonectomy, were 40.5% for broncho-plastic cases, and 43.3% for lobectomy cases, and 23.9% for pneumonectomy case. Many reports describe end results of cases for which bronchoplastic procedures and bronchovascular procedures were done.’** Operative mortality of bronchoplastic procedures were 0-and 11.4%. Anastomotic stricture rates were 0-17.0%, while […]

Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer: Results

Results From 1965 to 1987, bronchoplastic procedures were performed on 111 Japanese patients with primary lung cancer. Of these 111 cases, sleeve lobectomy was performed in 91 cases, including 19 cases in which sleeve lobectomy was done with concomitant resection of the pulmonary artery, and 20 wedge resection cases including 1 case in which wedge […]

Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer: Operative Procedures

Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer: Operative Procedures

Ligation and dissection of the pulmonary vein, mediastinal lymph node dissection, and ligation and dissection of pulmonary artery are carried out. On the right side, the azygos vein is resected. When dissection of the azygos vein is performed, it is done at the side of the superior vena cava to prepare it for use as […]

Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer: Decision and Extent of Range to be Resected

Decision and Extent of Range to be Resected For operative determination on range of cancerous invasion in bronchus required to judge whether this procedure is appropriate or not, major subjects are the change on the surface of bronchial mucous membrane observed by endoscopy and the extent of invasion of bronchial epithelium as well as bronchial […]

Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer

Bronchoplastic and Bronchovascular Procedures of the Tracheobronchial Tree in the Management of Primary Lung Cancer

Price Thomas performed the first sleeve lobectomy in a case of bronchial adenoma in 1947 and Allison the first bronchovascular procedure for bronchial carcinoma in 1952. Paulson and Shaw reported 9 cases of bronchoplasty for lung carcinoma in 1955 as a compromise operation for patients whose pulmonary reserve was inadequate to permit pneumonectomy. After these […]

Radiologic Staging of Lung Cancer Using CT and MRI: Conclusion

The reason that various investigators differ in their criteria for mediastinal adenopathy is that until recently there have been few defined standards for mediastinal normality at specific mediastinal locations. One site where normal nodes have been analyzed is in the pretracheal retrocaval space. Normal nodes at this site had a mean diameter of 5.5 ± […]

Radiologic Staging of Lung Cancer Using CT and MRI

Radiologic Staging of Lung Cancer Using CT and MRI

Lung cancer is a major health problem in the United States; it currently is the leading cause of cancer death in men and women over 35 years of age. Despite significant advances in chemotherapy and radiation therapy cure of non-small cell lung cancer is achievable only by surgical resection. Accurate preoperative staging of lung cancer […]
