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.

Rapid Discharge After Anatomic Lung Resection: Is Ambulatory Surgery for Early Lung Cancer Possible?
February 14, 2024
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.
