Postpneumonectomy compensatory lung response and normal lung growth in the early postnatal period were studied in male and female rats. Four-week-old litter-matched male and female Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to left pneumonectomy or sham operation and followed for 3 wk. In both sexes after pneumonectomy, lung weight (WL), lung volume (VL), alveolar surface area (Sw), total alveolar number (N(at)), and the amount of DNA and protein increased significantly. In both males and females, WL… CONTINUE READING
