MO22.09 - Thoracoscopic half carina resection and bronchial sleeve resection for central lung cancer (ID 2083)
10:30 - 12:00 | Author(s): J. Huang
The objectives of this study were to report the surgical techniques and clinical outcome of thoracoscopic half carina resection and thoracoscopic bronchial sleeve resection for central lung cancer.
Between January 2011 and November 2012, 675 patients with lung cancer underwent radical surgery by thoracoscopy, 49 (7.3%) underwent bronchial sleeve resection. Among 49 patients, 20 (41%) received thoracoscopic bronchial sleeve lobectomy. Perioperative variables and postoperative outcomes of these cases were analyzed to evaluate the technical feasibility and safety of this operation.
In one patient, right upper lung sleeve resection was combined with half-carinal resection and reconstruction. In another, right medial lung sleeve resection was combined with lower right dorsal segment resection. The average time of surgery was 239 min (range, 142-330 min, 239±51 min), and the average time of airway reconstruction was 44 min (range, 22-75 min, 44±17 min). The intraoperative blood loss averaged 207 ml (range, 80-550 ml, 207±96 min). The median postoperative hospital stay was 10 days (interquartile range, 8-12 days). Postoperatively, extubation was achieved in the recovery room without further need for mechanical ventilation. None of the patients developed anastomotic leak. Perioperative mortality was not observed.
Thoracoscopic bronchial sleeve resection can be considered a feasible and safe operation for selected patients with central lung cancer. The complicated anastomosis technique of half carina resection was feasible.
