A new method to predict values for postoperative lung function and surgical risk of lung resection by quantitative breath sound measurements.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES We evaluated quantitative acoustic measurements, as a simpler alternative to perfusion scintigraphy, for estimation of predicted postoperative (ppo) lung function after resection surgery in our patient population. METHODS Patients with lung cancer, considered as candidates for lung resection, were enrolled in the study. All patients underwent… (More)
