BACKGROUND Although staple line buttressing is advocated to reduce air leak after lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS), its effectiveness is unknown. We sought to identify risk factors for air leak and its duration and to estimate its medical consequences for selecting optimal perioperative technique(s), such as buttressing technique, to preempt or treat post-LVRS air leak. METHODS Detailed air leak data were available for 552 of 580 patients receiving bilateral stapled LVRS in the National… CONTINUE READING
