Abstract: The indication for sleeve lobectomy of the middle lobe is limited, because the frequency of cancer occupying both the middle lobe and its bifurcation is low and the more commonly used middle and lower lobectomy is an alternate procedure. However, if a patient has accompanying cardiopulmonary restriction, lung preservation is paramount. We present a patient with hilar lung cancer (TisN0M0) associated with progressive cardiomyopathy, who underwent sleeve lobectomy of the middle lobe; the cancer took a favorable … Show more

“…19 Clinical and radiographic findings may mimic those of tuberculosis, mycoses or malignancy 19,25 and open or transbronchial lung biopsies are often necessary for definitive diagnosis. 19,25,26 Several authors have reported the presence of Actinomyces in human patients diagnosed with pulmonary neoplasia (predominantly bronchial carcinoma) 19,21,22,27 or other mass lesions such as tuberculosis. 20,22 The tendency for Actinomyces to colonise devitalised or injured tissues with low oxygen tension and oxidation-reduction potential, including neoplasms, has been noted.…”

“…The clinical effects of OLV in human patients with systolic ventricular dysfunction have not been studied systematically, and the scant available information in the English language literature comes from case reports, with most patients having only LV dysfunction, 68,69 dysfunction of mild to moderate severity, 70 and/or mechanical circulatory support. 69 Leonard and Myles 68 describe the anesthetic management of a patient with impaired LV systolic function (LVEF = 25%) who underwent thoracotomy and pulmonary lobectomy under total intravenous anesthesia.…”
