Readmission After Lobectomy for Lung Cancer
This examination of readmission rates is based on data from nearly 40,000 patients from the STS Database having undergone elective pulmonary lobectomy. Readmission was driven by complications during the index operation, notably pulmonary embolism, empyema, pleural effusion, and pneumothorax. Improved pleural space management may offer a means to mitigate readmission rates.
