BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Visceral pleural invasion (VPI) is considered a poor prognostic factor in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We aimed to analyze the effect of VPI on cancer-specific survival, using propensity score matching (PSM) based on the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database. METHODS: We identified 9901 patients with T1-2N0-2M0 who received segmentectomy, lobectomy, or pneumonectomy. Ten covariates were included in PSM. The effect of VPI on survival was assessed, stratified by nodal status and tumor size...

BACKGROUND: During lobectomy in patients with lung cancer, the operated lung is often -collapsed and hypoperfused. Ischemia/reperfusion injury may then occur when the lung is -re-expanded. We hypothesized that remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) would decrease oxidative lung damage and improve gas exchange in the postoperative period. METHODS: We conducted a single-center, randomized, double-blind trial in patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer undergoing elective lung lobectomy...

Lung carcinoid tumors account for approximately 2% of lung cancers, with 10% of the tumors represented by the atypical type. While atypical carcinoids are metastatic to intrathoracic lymph nodes in approximately half of the cases on the initial presentation, distant metastases are seen in only 20% of the patients and are found most frequently in bones, liver, adrenal glands, and brain. We present a case of an unusual metastatic disease to the breast in 51-year-old female who developed a new breast mass 2 years after left lower lobectomy due to atypical carcinoid tumor...

OBJECTIVE: Since the prognosis after standard lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) is poor, we investigated the possibility of sublobar resection for the improvement of the surgical results in such patients. METHODS: Of 796 consecutive patients with clinical stage I NSCLC who underwent pulmonary resection, 107 were diagnosed with ILD using high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT). Overall survivals (OS) were compared between patients with non-ILD and those with ILD or between patients with ILD who underwent lobectomy and those who underwent sublobar resection...
