Postpneumonectomy pulmonary oedema (PPO) complicates a significant number of thoracic surgical procedures involving lung resection and in its extreme form is indistinguishable from the acute respiratory distress syndrome. This study investigated the possibility that ischaemia-reperfusion (I-R) injury contributes to PPO via the production of damaging reactive oxygen species. In a prospective, observational, comparative study, patients undergoing pneumonectomy, lobectomy, or wedge resection or… CONTINUE READING
