  • Cardiopulmonary Testing Prior to Lung Resection: What are Thoracic Surgeons Doing? [Journal Article]
  • ATAnn Thorac Surg 2019 Jun 07
  • Clark JM, Marrufo AS, … Brown LM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Among thoracic surgeons, there is variation in preoperative cardiopulmonary assessment practices, with differences by practice type and years in practice, and marked discordance with the ACCP guidelines. Further study of guideline adherence linked to postoperative morbidity and mortality is warranted to determine whether adherence impacts outcomes.
  • [Preconditioning of the lungs and circulation before visceral and thoracic surgical interventions]. [Review]
  • CChirurg 2019; 90(7):529-536
  • Möller T, Becker T, Egberts JH
  • CONCLUSIONS: In addition to preoperative diagnostics to assess the perioperative risk, effective preconditioning of patients is also necessary. For this an interdisciplinary approach including anesthesia, pneumology, psychotherapy and physiotherapy is necessary. In addition to the conservative medicinal optimization, prehabilitation concepts are gaining in importance and will certainly become established in routine clinical practice. From the surgical perspective, minimally invasive approaches and parenchyma-sparing resections also serve to reduce risks.
