Evaluation for Lung Resection Full PFTs Patients whose PFT results show good lung function (ie, FEV1, > 2 L or > 60% of predicted; and DLco, > 60%) can be referred for surgery without undergoing other tests for further assessing their pulmonary status. Debapriya Datta, MD, Bimalin Lahiri, MD. Preoperative Evaluation of Patients Undergoing Lung Resection Surgery. CHEST 2003; 123:2096–2103
Patients with preoperative FEV1 values < 60% of predicted and/or DLco values < 60% of predicted need further evaluation. They should undergo a quantitative ventilation-perfusion lung scan to estimate ppo FEV1 and predicted postoperative (ppo) DLco. If the ppo FEV1 and ppo Dlco are > 40% of predicted, surgical risk is acceptable, and surgery (including pneumonectomy) should be offered to these patients.
Patients with ppo FEV1 and ppo Dlco values of < 40% should undergo exercise testing to evaluate pulmonary reserve and to assess the adequacy of oxygen transport. Cycle ergometry with incremental workloads, which measures V ̇ O 2, V ̇ O 2 max, minute ventilation, and carbon dioxide output with concomitant monitoring of ECG, BP, oximetry, while the patient exercises to the maximal end point or to the symptom-limited maximum, is probably the best form of exercise testing.
Patients with ppo FEV1/ DLco ratios of 15 mL/kg/ min, can undergo surgical resection, including pneu- monectomy. The algorithm validated by Wyser et al using a higher cutoff of 80% of predicted for FEV1 and DLco, and incorporating exercise testing earlier in the evaluation, represents an alternative approach to evaluating patients for lung resection surgery.
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Clinical Criteria for the Diagnosis of ALI (acute lung injury), ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome.) – Timing: acute – Chest Radiograph: Diffuse, bilateral infiltrates – Oxygenation ALI Acute PaO2/FiO2 < 300 mm Hg ARDS Acute PaO2/FiO2 < 200 mm Hg – Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure : < 18 mm Hg Bernard GR, Artigas A, Brigham KL, et al and The Consensus Committee: The American-European Consensus Conference on ARDS.

Incidence for Developing ALI/ARDS Studies indicate that ALI/ARDS occurs after 2% to 4% of pneumonectomies, 1% of lobectomies, and is estimated to be 0.1% to 0.2% after thoracoscopic surgery Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, Vol 8, No 4 (December), 2004: pp 317–334
Mortality of ALI/ARDS Once developed, ALI and ARDS may carry a high mortality. Death rates in surgical and medical patients from ALI/ARDS range from 53% to 74%. However, even the development of the less severe condition, ALI, carries a high mortality (26%–33%). Especially at risk are right pneumonectomy patients. Mortality has been reported to be 100% for patients who developed ALI/ARDS after a right pneumonectomy compared with 50% mortality if the patient had undergone a left pneumonectomy. No difference in mortality has been found with respect to the side of surgery after lobectomy.
Risks for Developing ALI/ARDS Age greater than 60 years Male gender Chronic suppurative disease Concurrent cardiac disease Low diffusion capacity for carbon monoxide Prior radiation or chemotherapy Remaining lung perfusion of less than 55% of total lung perfusion Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, Vol 8, No 4 (December), 2004: pp 317–334
Risks for Developing ALI/ARDS Intraoperative factors include – Pneumonectomy (right greater than left, carinal resection greater than noncarinal resection) – Excessive perioperative – Intravascular volume – Extent of tissue resection – Duration of operation – Increased blood loss – reoperation. Postoperative associations include elevated perioperative – Fluid intake and – Nonbalanced drainage of hemithorax after pneumonectomy. Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, Vol 8, No 4 (December), 2004: pp 317–334
Postulated Mechanisms for ALI/ARDS Elevated pulmonary vascular pressures Lung capillary endothelial damage Lymphatic disruption and surgical trauma Acute inflammatory reaction to operative lung collapse and re-expansion Ischemia-reperfusion injury of operative lung Relative oxygen toxicity and reactive oxygen species generation Microembolization Volutrauma Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, Vol 8, No 4 (December), 2004: pp 317–334
Postulated Mechanisms for ALI/ARDS
Chemotherapy-Induced Late Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Following Right Pneumonectomy for Bronchogenic Carcinoma Respir Care 2003;48(6):606–610. Late ( >30 day) ALI/ARDS after surgery and neoadjuvant therapy is a less well known impending severe complication after extensive resection of non-small-cell lung cancer. They reported 2 patients who suffered late postoperative acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) that was felt to be chemotherapy-induced.
Both patients underwent neoadjuvant combination chemotherapy prior to right pneumonectomy for primary bronchogenic carcinoma, and then suffered ARDS in the remaining lung a few weeks after surgery. The first occurred in a patient treated with gemcitabine, the second in a patient receiving a combination of vinorelbine and mitomycin.
No evidence of infection or other specific ARDS etiologies could be found, whereas the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid cell differentiation and protein content suggested the permeability form of lung edema. Both patients had rapid clinical, functional, and radiologic improvement with high-dose corticosteroids. High dose corticosteroids have been described as effective in treating this but this is only anecdodal at this point. – EVANGELOS BRIASOULIS, NICHOLAS PAVLIDIS.

Risk factor analysis for postoperative acute respiratory distress syndrome and early mortality after pneumonectomy: The predictive value of preoperative lung perfusion distribution J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2010;140:26-31) Objectives To establish the preoperative risk factors in the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and early mortality after pneumonectomy for lung cancer and to examine the influence of reduced pulmonary perfusion on outcomes.
Methods Between 1994 and 2009, of 425 patients who underwent simple pneumonectomy for primary lung cancer, 164 who were preoperatively evaluated with lung perfusion scanning formed the population of this study.
Results Of 30 (18.3%) patients who had major pulmonary complications, 17 (10.4%) progressed to ARDS, 15 of whom subsequently died. On multivariable logistic regression analyses, lower predicted postoperative forced expiratory volume in 1 second (ppo-FEV1; relative risk of 0.93 [P ¼.020] for ARDS and 0.94 [P ¼.027] for mortality) and greater perfusion fraction of resected lung (relative risk of 1.10 [P ¼.003] for ARDS and 1.09 [P ¼.002] for mortality) were found to be independent factors associated with ARDS and early mortality.
With a cut-off value of 35% for perfusion fraction of resected lung, patients with a perfusion fraction of greater than 35% had a greater incidence of ARDS (17.3% vs 3.3%, P ¼.005) and early mortality (19.8% vs 6.0%, P ¼.010) than those with a perfusion fraction of 35% or less.
Conclusions Patients with a low ppo-FEV1, a high perfusion fraction of resected lung, or both had a higher incidence of ARDS and early mortality after pneumonectomy. Therefore, although the ppo-FEV1 appears to be within an acceptable limit for pneumonectomy, much attention should be given to patients with a high perfusion fraction of resected lung.
Treatment/Prevention After the onset of respiratory failure, oxygen therapy and ventilatory assistance must be initiated. Noninvasive ventilation has been reported to reduce mortality of ARDS after lung resection. – Auriant I, et al. Noninvasive ventilation reduces mortality in acute respiratory failure following lung resection. Am J Respir Crit Care Med. 2001;164(7):1231–5. ARDS Net trials have demonstrated lung protective ventilation strategies improve outcomes. – Petrucci N, Iacovelli W (2007) Lung protective ventilation strategy for the acute respiratory distress syndrome. Cochrane Database Syst Rev 3: CD
The early use of inhaled nitric oxide or other pulmonary vasodilators has been promoted. – Mathisen DJ, et al. Inhaled nitric oxide for adult respiratory distress syndrome after pulmonary resection. Ann Thorac Surg. 1998;66(6):1894–902. – Rabkin DG, et al. Nitric oxide for the treatment of postpneu- monectomy pulmonary edema. Ann Thorac Surg. 2001;72(1): 272–4. But a recent meta-analysis of nitric oxide use for acute hypoxic respiratory failure in children and adults did not show a benefit in overall mortality. – Sokol J, Jacobs SE, Bohn D. Inhaled nitric oxide for acute hypoxic respiratory failure in children and adults: a meta-analysis. Anesth Analg. 2003;97(4):989–98.
The use of low-dose corticosteroids in ARDS was associated with improved mortality and morbidity outcomes without increased adverse reactions. – Tang BM, et al. Use of corticosteroids in acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Crit Care Med. 2009;37(5):1594–603. Lee et al. demonstrated a possible benefit of using low- dose corticosteroids in patients with ARDS after thoracotomy in a recent nonrandomized small observational study. – Lee HS, et al. Low-dose steroid therapy at an early phase of postoperative acute respiratory distress syndrome. Ann Thorac Surg. 2005;79(2):405–10.
The beneficial effects of the use of early low-dose steroids in ARDS are consistent with the hypothesis that fibroproliferation is an early response to lung injury, which is inhibited by early low-dose steroid therapy without disturbing operative wound healing. Sivelestat sodium hydrate is a selective neutrophil elastase inhibitor with low molecular weight and has been shown to improve respiratory status in cases of ARDS, sepsis, ventilator-induced lung injury, and ALI caused by various stresses in human patients and in animal models. – The use of neutrophil elastase inhibitor in the treatment of acute lung injury after pneumonectomy. Lee et al. Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery 2013, 8:69
Kawahara et al. demonstrated that perioperative administration of sivelestat sodium hydrate from the day of the operation: Partially suppressed hypercytokinemia following surgical stress, Shortened the duration of postoperative systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), Stabilized postoperative circulatory status with earlier start of capillary refilling after postoperative dehydration, and improved postoperative hypoxia in patients with thoracic esophageal cancer who underwent thoracoscopic esophagectomy. – Kawahara Y, et al. Prospective randomized controlled study on the effects of perioperative administration of a neutrophil elastase inhibitor to patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for thoracic esophageal cancer. Dis Esophagus. 2010;23(4):329–39.
Some previous reports have recommended an appropriate fluid restriction during surgery and for the first 48 h following major lung resections, especially pneumonectomy. – Zeldin RA, et al. Postpneumonectomy pulmonary edema. J Tho- rac Cardiovasc Surg. 1984;87(3):359–65. Robert et al. recommended a conservative strategy of administration of maintenance fluids at 1–2 ml/ kg/h in the intra and postoperative periods and that a positive fluid balance of 1.5 l should not be exceeded, to mitigate the risk of multifactorial ARDS. – Evans RG, Naidu B. Does a conservative fluid management strategy in the perioperative management of lung resection patients reduce the risk of acute lung injury? Interact Cardiovasc Thorac Surg. 2012;15(3):498–504.
Intraoperative steroid administration prior to pulmonary artery ligation can prevent postpneumonectomy pulmonary edema. However, the suppressant effect of cortico- steroids on wound healing and immune response raises concern. The indication and timing of administration of corticosteroids are still controversial and randomized controlled studies are needed to validate the benefit of corticosteroids in the treatment of ARDS after lung resection. – Cerfolio RJ, et al. Intraoperative solumedrol helps prevent post- pneumonectomy pulmonary edema. Ann Thorac Surg. 2003;76(4):1029–33 discussion 1033–5.
Take Home Points The definition of ARDS was updated with the Berlin Task Force. ALI/ARDS occurs after 2% to 4% of pneumonectomies. Patients with a perfusion fraction of greater than 35% had a greater incidence of ARDS. Chemotherpy related ARDS after pneumonectomy should be considered in the differential if indicated.
Continued… Sivelestat sodium hydrate may have a role in prevention/treatment of ARDS, although further research is needed. Judicious use of perioperative IV fluids should be considered. Steroids should be considered in the treatment of post-pneumonectomy and chemotherapy-related ARDS.
