    Background It is difficult to achieve a margin-negative resection (R0) for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with infiltration of the pulmonary artery. We report our experience of the pulmonary artery reconstruction with regard to long-term survival. Methods Clinical records of 118...

    Abstract: Objective: Pulmonary resections after pneumonectomy due to metastases or metachronous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are rare because of the high potential risk of the second procedure and uncertain long-term results. On the basis of our series (largest in Europe) we tried to...
