To compare the outcome of sleeve resection or complex sleeve resection versus (Vs) pneumonectomy for lung cancer in a single unit. Between 1998 and 2006, 664 lung resections were carried out. There were 129 (19.4%) pneumonectomies and 79 (11.9%) sleeve resections; Twenty one patients (26.5%) underwent a complex sleeve resection. Operative mortality for the sleeve resections (SR) was 2.5% and for the pneumonectomies 8.53%. Overall 5-year survival after SR was 46.8% and after pneumonectomy 37.1%....[Show more]
