Carinal resection and sleeve pneumonectomy


Weder, Walter; Inci, Ilhan (2014). Carinal resection and sleeve pneumonectomy. Thoracic surgery clinics, 24(1):77-83.

Abstract

Carinal resection and sleeve pneumonectomy are rare procedures and challenging issues in thoracic surgery. In spite of the knowledge of the technique, the incidence of postoperative complications is higher compared with standard resections. Adequate patient selection, improved anesthetic management and surgical technique, and better postoperative management might reduce the rate of postoperative morbidity and mortality.
