Factors associated with compensatory lung growth after pulmonary lobectomy for lung malignancy: an analysis of lung weight and lung volume changes based on computed tomography findings

AbstractPurposeTo establish the factors associated with compensatory lung growth (CLG) in human adults.MethodsThe subjects of this study were 216 patients who underwent pulmonary lobectomy between January 2008 and March 2015 and had computed tomography (CT) scans done before and 2  years after surgery with no signs of recurrence. The predicted postoperative values of lung volume and lung weight, based on the preoperative CT data, were compared with those 2 years after surgery.ResultsWhen the predicted postoperative values were considered to be 100%, the mean lung volume and lung weight 2  years after surgery were 116 ± 16% and 115 ± 19%, respectively. CLG was defined as both lung volume ≥ 110% and lung weight ≥ 106% (CLG group;n = 108). Both univariate and multivariate analyses showed that younger age (≤ 60 years), a larger number of resected subsegments (≥ 10), and a light- (

;š M Abstract Superior Shoulder Suspensory Complex (SSSC) is a bone and soft-tissue ring securing the connection of the upper extremity to the axial skeleton via the clavicle and sternoclavicular joint. An isolated injury to one component of SSSC is usually stable. An injury to 2 of its components is a potential source of shoulder girdle instability and requires surgical stabilisation. An injury affecting 3 and more components is extremely rare and surgical stabilisation should be indicated. Our study presents the case of a 50-year-old man who fell off the bicycle and sustained a direct blow to his left sho...

Patients evaluated their comfort by using an 11-point numerical rating scale (NRS-11) after completing the two examinations. The lower the score was, the more comfortable the examinat...

Conclusions Withdrawing PEEP before emergence preoxygenation does not reduce atelectasis formation after nonabdominal surgery. Despite using 100% oxygen during awakening, postoperative atelectasis is small and does not affect oxygenation, possibly conditional on an open lung during anesthesia, as achieved by intraoperative PEEP.
