Abstract

Objective: To compare post-operative course, lung function and survival of lung cancer patients with a forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) more or less than 80% of predicted submitted to lobectomy. Methods: The data of patients undergoing lobectomy for non small cell carcinoma at the Thoracic Surgery Unit of the Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico of Milan, Italy, were prospectively collected.
