During a 28-year period, 52 bronchopleural fistulas developed after pulmonary resection of 49 primary and three recurrent lung cancers at the National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo. During the same period there were 2359 pulmonary resections for primary lung cancer; the prevalence of bronchopleural fistula was 2.1%. Multivariate analysis on 15 variables in the most recent 1360 resections revealed significant risk factors for bronchopleural fistula: wider resection such as pneumonectomy… CONTINUE READING
