The authors of this paper explored early postoperative outcomes in all patients (n= 833) undergoing uniportal segmentectomy and lobectomy in their unit between 2017 and 2022. During this study period, the utilization of uniportal access operations increased.

This study surveyed 123 thoracic surgeons and posed several questions asking which surgical resection they would prefer if they themselves were diagnosed with several variations of lung cancer size and location.

In this single-center series of 430 patients with stage I or II non-small cell lung cancer who underwent minimally invasive lobectomy (n = 200) or segmentectomy (n = 230), 162 (37 percent) were discharged less than 18 hours postoperatively without a chest tube, and 37 patients were discharged the day of surgery.

The authors of this paper note that the surgical landscape has changed in the last two years. They suggest that the multidisciplinary team should avoid a diagnostic wedge resection if segmentectomy would be the definitive and recommended operation. In that case, advanced navigation techniques should be used for diagnosis.

This paper looks to explore the outcomes in obese patients with non-small cell lung cancer following VATS or open lobectomy. The authors utilized data from the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons Database to assess morbidity and postoperative length of stay in 78,018 patients across a fourteen-year period.

A retrospective cohort analysis of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons General Thoracic Surgery Database of 128,723 patients—who underwent pulmonary resection for non-small cell lung cancer between 2009 and 2019—identified 1,873 (1.5 percent) with interstitial lung disease.

This large-scale analysis of the National Cancer Database (NCDB) highlights some interesting trends in the current use of systemic therapy in patients with NSCLC who undergo pneumonectomy.
