OBJECTIVE Video-assisted thoracic surgery followed by fast-track rehabilitation has been claimed to accelerate physiological recovery after lung lobectomy for cancer; however, we are still uncertain when the exercise and oxygenation capacity recover and how to determine the rehabilitation time required by each patient. The aim of this study was to evaluate the rehabilitation time after this type of surgery and determine the best predictors of rehabilitation time. METHODS We measured exercise… CONTINUE READING
