This original article compares the outcome of sleeve lobectomy compared to conventional lobectomy in the treatment of patients with lung cancer. Inci et al. investigated 187 patients who underwent sleeve lobectomy and compared it to 568 patients who underwent conventional lobectomy. They found no difference in safety end-points or mid-term follow-up regarding the two different groups.
