Carinal resection and sleeve pneumonectomy


Weder, Walter; Inci, Ilhan (2016). Carinal resection and sleeve pneumonectomy. Journal of Thoracic Disease, 8(Suppl 11):S882-S888.

Abstract

Carinal resection (CR) and sleeve pneumonectomy (SP) are one of the challenging issues in thoracic surgery and performed rarely. In spite of the knowledge of the technique, the incidence of postoperative complications is higher compared to standard resections. Adequate patient selection, improved anesthetic management, surgical technique and better postoperative management might reduce the rate of postoperative morbidity and mortality.
