Comparing bilobectomy and lobectomy for lung cancer

EJCTSSimilar postoperative risk after lobectomy or bilobectomy for lung cancer has been found in a retrospectives study of matched cases and controls in our unit. Spite that bilobectomy is followed by an evident space mismatch, we have found no differences in the rate of postoperative complications. The study will be published in the European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (http://ejcts.oxfordjournals.org/) and you’ll find the abstract in Pubmed soon (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed).
