      • Abstract

      Uniportal segmentectomy is a therapeutic option for small lung nodule, but the debate over uniportal segmentectomy still remains. The aim of this study is to evaluate of efficacy and safety of uniportal segmentectomy in the treatment of small lung nodule.

      A total of 85 patients who underwent uniportal segmentectomy or subsegmentectomy between January 2017 and September 2018 in Liaoning Cancer Hospital. The clinical data of these patients were retrospectively analyzed, including operation time, number of lymph nodes dissected and postoperative mortality, postoperative complications, postoperative intubation time, and postoperative hospital stay.

      The surgery procedure was anatomical pulmonary segmentectomy or subsegmentectomy. Uniportal segmentectomy was in 81 cases, and subsegmentectomy was in 4 cases. The median operation time was 243 minutes (range, 60-405 minutes), median number of lymph nodes dissected was 14 (range, 0-31), median postoperative intubation time was 5 days (range, 1-9 days), median postoperative hospital stay was 8 days (range, 3-19 days). The postoperative complications were pneumonia 1 case (1.2%), fever 9 cases (10.6%), hemoptysis 1 case (1.2%), air leak 1 case (1.2%), atrial fibrillation 1 case (1.2%), and subcutaneous hydrops 2 cases (2.4%). There was no severe postoperative complications, including death, bleeding, reoperation, and bronchopleural fistula.

      Uniportal segmentectomy is a safe and feasible technique for treating small pulmonary lesions, with acceptable postoperative complications and mortality.
