Treatment of Patients with Cardiovascular Disease

Impact of Cardiovascular Comorbidity on the Outcome of Surgery for Stage I and II NSCLC (PubMed)
Study reported in the February 2004 issue of the European Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery that found cardiovascular disease "seems to have" a significant impact on survival and morbidity in patients undergoing surgery for lung cancer, especially in the presence of multifocal vascular disease and following major resections. The timing of vascular surgery and the extension of resection should rely on the severity of the vascular disease, and the anesthesiologist's and surgeon's final evaluation. [2/04]
