However, it has been reported that the new PTX-3 biomarker was significantly increased in inflammation due to lung cancer, and in inflammatory diseases.16-19 In our study, posterolateral thoracotomy was performed in 11 patients due to lung cancer, intrapericardial pneumonectomy in two patients, sleeve lobectomy in one patient, bilobectomy
in one patient, and lobectomy in seven patients; lymph node dissection was performed in all patients.

In this retrospective cohort study, primary NSCLC patients undergoing lobectomy, bilobectomy
, or pneumonectomy and diagnosed with pN1 disease between January 2000 and January 2017 were analyzed.
Lobectomy was performed in 81 (59.6%) cases, pneumonectomy in 44 (32.4%) cases, wedge resection in 7 (5.1%) cases, and mediastinal lymph node sampling concomitant with bilobectomy
in 4 (2.9%) cases with NSCLC diagnosis.

and development of collateral circulation," Thorax, vol.
Lobectomy or bilobectomy
was found to be superior to pneumonectomy in terms of survival rates in a series of 6.644 patients diagnosed with NSCLC (p=0.01) (8).
Pulmonary vein thrombosis following bilobectomy
. Chest 1991; 99: 1515-6.
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.
Of these, 108 patients (18.1%) 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.
Fifteen needed decortications while lobectomy was performed in 7 patients and bilobectomy
and pnemonectomy in one patient each (Figure 2).
