    Postpneumonectomy syndrome (PPS) is a rare late complication of pneumonectomy. It occurs more often in children than in adults, and is characterized by respiratory failure resulting from bronchial compression caused by severe mediastinal shift. Various methods have been used to treat PPS,...

    The wide variability of bronchial stump suturing technique shows us that an ideal method has not been discovered yet. The aim of the present study is to assess the outcomes in terms of occurrence of bronchial fistula after use of an original technique of bronchial stump closure. Material and...

    Background. Bronchopleural fistulas (BPFs) development after pneumonectomy remains a serious complication and is associated with high mortality rate. We evaluated incidence and risk factors, that influenced BPF rate after pneumonectomies for lung cancer patients treated at the Department of...

    Abstract: A 66-year-old man underwent repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm and synchronous stenting of a thoracic aneurysm compressing his left main bronchus. This resulted in further bronchial compression which was also stented. An aorto-bronchial fistula resulting in severe haemoptysis...

    In most rodents and some other mammals, the removal of one lung results in compensatory growth associated with dramatic angiogenesis and complete restoration of lung capacity. One pivotal mechanism in neoalveolarization is neovascularization, because without angiogenesis new alveoli can not be...

    Bronchial obstruction due to a tumor embolus of the contralateral lung during pneumonectomy is an uncommon and fatal complication. According to previous cases, a bronchial balloon of double-lumen endotracheal tube (DLT) could prevent a dislodged tumor from traveling to the contralateral lung. We...

    Abstract: A rare case of a patient with progressive dyspnoea due to atrial compression between ascending and descending aorta is demonstrated. After neoadjuvant chemoradiation for a locally advanced nonsmall cell lung cancer stage IIIb, he had a left-sided pneumonectomy. The underlying problem...

    The occurrence of bronchopleural fistulas is a serious complication after pneumonectomy because of lung cancer and additional bronchial stump coverage within right-sided and left-sided pneumonectomy therefore constitutes the operative standard. This is a case report on the early diagnosis of a...

    Sporadic reports on cardiac herniation are available in the literature; most of them had followed intrapericardial pneumonectomies for malignant pulmonary tumors. We present an uncommon event of heart herniation after a completion pneumonectomy indicated for chronic bronchiectasis. A 35-year-old...

    OBJECTIVES The study aimed to compare in-hospital, 30-day and non-cancer-related 6-month death rates in a series of right and left pneumonectomy cases matched according to functional parameters. METHODS A retrospective study was conducted on a series of 263 non-small cell lung cancer patients...
