  • CONCLUSIONS: Evidence on the safety of LMA for PDT is too limited to allow conclusions to be drawn on either its efficacy or safety compared with ETT. Although the LMA procedure may shorten the period during which the airway is insecure, it may also lead to higher conversion rates. Also, late complications have not been investigated sufficiently. These results are primarily based on single-centre trials with small sample sizes, and therefore the level of evidence remains low. Studies with low risk of bias focusing on late complications and relevant patient-related outcomes are necessary for definitive conclusions on safety issues related to this procedure. The dependency of the successful placement of a LMA on the type of LMA used should also be further assessed.There are two studies awaiting classification that may alter the conclusions once assessed.

  • CONCLUSIONS: Microwave ablation of primary and secondary lung malignancies is a reasonable therapeutic approach for select patients. Estimates of local failure after treatment are highly variable, with newer reports as well as smaller tumors having more favorable treatment efficacy rates.
