Bronchoplastic surgery enlarge the spectrum of standardlung resections as a treatment of non-small cell lung carcer with preserved oncological radicality.

The aim of our study
is to assess, based on our own experience with 39 patients that underwent this kind of surgery, the results in terms of post-operative morbidity and mortality, to point out the risks of complication linked with this kind of resection and to define the factors suitable to minimize these risks.

Very good immediate as well as long-term results place the bronchoplastic surgery to the same level of importance to standard lung resections. In case of the convenient localization of the central tumors, there is an indication for all patients regardless of the respiratory function parameters.

lung cancer – bronchoplastic surgery – complications
