Objective. Patients who underwent previous thoracotomy develop dominant perfusion on the contra lateral side but the risk of performing an iterative pulmonary resection on a post-surgical dominant lung has never been investigated. It was the aim of this prospective, single-center study. Methods. Since January 2003, patients undergoing resection for lung cancer or metastatic disease on a post-surgical dominant lung were divided into 2 groups: those receiving anatomical resection (group A) and those undergoing single or multiple wedge resections (group B).

The study population was composed of 62 patients operated on a dominant lung in the last 48 months. Twenty-four of them underwent anatomical resection (males 17, median age 64, group A) and 33 underwent non-anatomical resection (males 23, median age 66, group B).

Abstract

Objective. Patients who underwent previous thoracotomy develop dominant perfusion on the contra lateral side but the risk of performing an iterative pulmonary resection on a post-surgical dominant lung has never been investigated. It was the aim of this prospective, single-center study. Methods. Since January 2003, patients undergoing resection for lung cancer or metastatic disease on a post-surgical dominant lung were divided into 2 groups: those receiving anatomical resection (group A) and those undergoing single or multiple wedge resections (group B). All clinical data were collected into a dedicated database in order to compare overall mortality and respiratory complication rate between the 2 groups. Results. The study population was composed of 62 patients operated on a dominant lung in the last 48 months. Twenty-four of them underwent anatomical resection (males 17, median age 64, group A) and 33 underwent non-anatomical resection (males 23, median age 66, group B). The 2 groups were homogeneous in terms of preoperative FEV1 (median group A 70%, group B 70%, Dlco% (median group A 84%, group B 91%) and perfusion of the operated lung (median group A 67%, group B 66%). Type of operation consisted of 9 and 8 respectively right and left upper lobectomy,3 middle lobectomy and 4 left lower lobectomy in group A; 17 and 16 respectively single and multiple pulmonary resections in group B. No postoperative death was recorded in both groups. In group A, 5 respiratory complications were recorded (21%) and one of them required reintubation and prolonged ICU stay. The other cases has respiratory failure successfully treated by non-invasive ventilation. In group B, 1 respiratory complication (3%, Chi square 0.04) was recorded in a patients who underwent single wedge resection after bilobectomy. Conclusions. An iterative anatomical resection on a post-surgical dominant lung is feasible however the postoperative morbidity risk is increased .
