Abstract

Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York. BACKGROUND:  Digital devices could help clinical practice measuring the air leak, but their role is still debated. Aim of this study is to test advantages using these devices.METHODS:  From June 2012 to May 2015, we enrolled 95 patients undergoing lobectomy or wedge resection in a prospective randomized trial. Patients were divided into two groups: group D (digital, 50 patients) evaluated with digital device and group E (empirical, 45 patients) evaluated with water seal. Logistic regression analysis and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis were used to select and assess predictors of persistent air leak. In group D, chest drain was removed if the air leak was absent or  0.2 L/h with spikes over 0.5 L/h in third p.o. was predictive of persistent air leak, with chest tube duration of 7.73 ± 5.20 versus 4.32 ± 1.33 days (AUC: 83%, sensitivity: 80%, p
