Extravascular lung water measured using single transpulmonary thermodilution reflects perioperative pulmonary edema induced by esophagectomy.

Abstract

Pulmonary edema is the most frequent postoperative complication following esophagectomy for thoracic esophageal cancer. We enrolled 23 patients who underwent esophagectomy with extended lymph node dissection for thoracic esophageal cancer in a prospective observational clinical trial. We used the PiCCO device to measure extravascular lung water with the aim… (More)
