The patients of the main group were hospitalized for radical surgery in the volume of lobectomy, bilobectomy
, pneumonectomy, combined treatment, or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for tumor biopsy.
1%) underwent sublobar resection, and 489 underwent anatomic resection (including pneumonectomy in 5 patients, lobectomy in 476 patients, and bilobectomy
in 8 patients).
He was the first surgeon on Long Island to perform robotic-assisted bilobectomy
lung surgery and robotic-assisted surgical removal of the thymus gland.
A right upper and middle bilobectomy
Fifteen needed decortications while lobectomy was performed in 7 patients and bilobectomy
and pnemonectomy in one patient each (Figure 2).
Pneumonectomy was performed in 25 patients, lobectomy in 240, segmentectomy in 29, bilobectomy
in 7, and wedge excision in 78.
was performed in one of the patients.
For the type of operative procedure, it is important to document the type/extent of resection (wedge, segmentectomy, lobectomy, bilobectomy
, pneumonectomy, other) and for en bloc specimens, any attached anatomic structures received (eg, portion of rib, pericardium).
