The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of assisted-VATS (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery) sleeve lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer for non-small cell lung cancer. Success is defined as assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy without conversion. If success rate over 90%, assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy is considered as feasible procedures for non-small cell lung cancer.
Sleeve lobectomy is removal of a portion of a main stem bronchus in continuity with the adjacent lobe or bilobe followed by end-to-end bronchial anastomosis. The first reported bronchial sleeve resection was performed in 1947 at the Brompton Hospital in London, England, by Sir Clement Price Thomas. Whether sleeve resection is radical enough and indicated for patients who could tolerate pneumonectomy continues to be debated, although many recent reports have suggested that sleeve resection can achieve adequate curability rates. However, sleeve lobectomy has a definite role in the surgical management of lung cancer for patients whose pulmonary reserve is considered inadequate to permit pneumonectomy, and should be used anytime it is possible to achieve a margin-negative (R0) resection.
Although video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is regarded as a minimally invasive procedure with good long-term survival results, many surgeons think that VATS is too complex and has too many technical limitations to be applied to bronchoplasty. Therefore, there are few reports in the literature of VATS bronchoplasty for lung cancer. The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of assisted-VATS (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery) sleeve lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer for non-small cell lung cancer. Success is defined as assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy without conversion. If success rate over 90%, assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy is considered as feasible procedures for non-small cell lung cancer.

Lung cancer is highly prevalent and has an especially poor prognosis. Thus, new diagnostic and therapeutic targets are necessary. Two potential targets are somatostatin receptors (SST), which are over...
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.
GILOTRIF (afatinib) is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L8...
