Abstract: A series of 260 patients who underwent pneumonectomy for cancer of the lung was analysed for post-operative arrhythmias. Of these patients 28% developed such arrhythmias, usually in the form of atrial fibrillation, on the first to third post-operative day, rapidly yielding to fast-acting digitalis preparations. Possible aetiological factors were investigated, but no single cause was demonstrable. The indication for pre-operative digitalization, if any, is discussed.Arrhythmias are fairly common following thora… Show more

“…The 30-day mortality and morbidity rates (5.2% and 24.1%, respectively) from this multi-institution series are in the range of those published from single-institution retrospective series (mortality 3%-14%; morbidity 10%-25%). [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9] The largest pneumonectomy series (n = 244) from the Mayo Clinic reported 11% deaths and The present/absent dichotomous risk variables were all coded as 0 = absent, 1 = present in the logistic regression analysis. SE, Standard error; OR, odds ratio; COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; RBC, red blood cell.…”

“…Because series span several decades and are of limited size, multivariable analyses were not undertaken. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] The National Veterans Affairs (VA) Surgical Quality Improvement Program was designed to prospectively collect historical, laboratory, operative, and postoperative patient characteristics and clinical outcomes for many operative procedures from several surgical subspecialties. The goal of the study was to develop tools for future risk-adjusted models of mortality and morbidity that would allow for the comparative assessment of the quality of surgical care at various institutions.…”

“…Most of them had episodes of supraventricular arrhythmia, but the incidence of AT was rare (8.9%) 5 . Few papers reported about characteristics of electrocardiogram (ECG) morphology after pneumonectomy 6 . This report presents an RAA AT following right pneumonectomy using a three‐dimensional mapping system.…”

“…5 Few papers reported about characteristics of electrocardiogram (ECG) morphology after pneumonectomy. 6 This report presents an RAA AT following right pneumonectomy using a three-dimensional mapping system. Right posterior shifting of sinus node due to cardiac deformation may result in the high positive amplitude of sinus P-wave in V1.…”
