Is Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Lobectomy a Clinical Alternative for Surgically Resectable Pathologic N2 NSCLC Patients

2018-08-08 16:21:14 | BioPortfolio


The study was designed to compare the safety and effectiveness of vedio-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy with open lobectomy for patients with surgically resectable pathologic N2 non-small cell lung cancer


The is a multi-center retrospective study. Patients with pathologic N2 NSCLC who underwent VATS or open lobectomy between 2014 and 2017 were included into this study. Clinical data on patient demographic, clinical characteristics, treatment and clinical outcomes will be collected to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy for pathologic N2 NSCLC.

Uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery reduced the occurrence of post-thoracotomy pain syndrome after lobectomy for lung cancer.

Post-thoracotomy pain syndrome (PTPS) is difficult for thoracic surgeons to manage. PTPS should never arise after minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (U-VA...

Decreasing use of epidural analgesia with increasing minimally invasive lobectomy: Impact on postoperative morbidity.

The goal of this study is to investigate the use of EA and its impact on the postoperative short-term outcomes of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who received a lobectomy by either mi...

A risk model to predict 2-year survival after VATS lobectomy for non-small-cell lung cancer.
