BACKGROUND Data were acquired prospectively on 136 consecutive patients undergoing pneumonectomy for cancer from 1988 to 1993, to define factors that increase the risk of major morbidity and postoperative cardiac dysrhythmias. METHODS There were 81 patients (60%) with non-small cell lung cancer (standard pneumonectomy) and 55 patients (40%) with malignant pleural mesothelioma (extrapleural pneumonectomy). RESULTS Four perioperative deaths occurred (3%) with no identifiable associated risk… CONTINUE READING
