Summary of "Reduction of air leakage using linear staple device with bioabsorbable polyglycolic acid felt for pulmonary lobectomy."

Pulmonary fistula is a common complication in pulmonary lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although a linear staple device with bioabsorbable polyglycolic acid (PGA) is used for pulmonary wedge resection with fragile pulmonary parenchyma, the efficacy of the stapler with PGA for dividing incomplete interlobular fissure in pulmonary lobectomy has not been elucidated. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of the stapler with PGA in reducing postoperative air leakage when dividing incomplete interlobular fissure in pulmonary lobectomy for NSCLC.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.

A technique of operations research for solving certain kinds of problems involving many variables where a best value or set of best values is to be found. It is most likely to be feasible when the quantity to be optimized, sometimes called the objective function, can be stated as a mathematical expression in terms of the various activities within the system, and when this expression is simply proportional to the measure of the activities, i.e., is linear, and when all the restrictions are also linear. It is different from computer programming, although problems using linear programming techniques may be programmed on a computer.

A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.

Device designed to wear externally to support muscular skeletal system in various movements such as RANGE OF MOTIONS; WEIGHT-BEARING; GAIT; and LOCOMOTION.

Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to a problem occurring in the manufacture or distribution of the product.
