The objective of this retrospective multi-institutional study was to evaluate the postoperative outcomes of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)-lobectomy (VATS-L) for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients with impaired lung function.

Abstract

The objective of this retrospective multi-institutional study was to evaluate the postoperative outcomes of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)-lobectomy (VATS-L) for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients with impaired lung function. The second end point was to illustrate the effective role of forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1%) and the diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO%) in predicting complications in this population.
