Abstract

To evaluate the clinical significance of degree of pulmonary fissure completeness (PFC) on major in-hospital outcomes following video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We carried out a single-center retrospective analysis on the prospectively maintained database at our unit between August 2014 and October 2015. Patients were divided into two groups based on their fissure sum average (FSA). Patients with FSA >1 (1< FSA ≤3) were considered to have incomplete pulmonary fissures (group A), while patients with FSA of 0-1 were considered to have complete pulmonary fissures (group B). Demographic differences in perioperative characteristics and surgical outcomes between these two groups were initially assessed. Then, a multivariate logistic-regression analysis was further conducted to identify the independent predictors for major in-hospital outcomes. A total of 563 patients undergoing VATS lobectomy for NSCLC were enrolled. There were 190 patients in group A and 373 patients in group B. The overall morbidity and mortality rates of our cohort were 30.6% and 0.5%, respectively. Group A patients had a significantly higher overall morbidity rate than group B patients (42.1% vs 24.7%,P<0.001). Both minor morbidity (40.5% vs 22%,P<0.001) and major morbidity (11.1% vs 5.6%,P=0.021) rates in group A patients were also significantly higher than group B patients. No significant difference was observed in mortality rate between these two groups (1.1% vs 0.3%,P=0.26). The incomplete degree of PFC was significantly correlated with length of stay and chest-tube duration (log-rankP<0.001) after surgery. Finally, the incomplete degree of PFC was found to be predictive of overall morbidity (OR 2.08,P<0.001), minor morbidity (OR 2.39,P<0.001), and major morbidity (OR 2.06,P=0.031) by multivariate logistic-regression analyses. Degree of PFC is an excellent categorical predictor for both major and minor morbidity after VATS lobectomy for NSCLC.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 April 2018.
All research outputs
#7,711,310
of 12,788,180 outputs
Outputs from Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management
#550
of 946 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#150,044
of 271,451 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management
#16
of 26 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,788,180 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 946 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.2. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 271,451 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 26 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
