Abstract

Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and diseased lung ventilation were presented as new methods of oxygenation during carinal reconstruction. Two cases of left sleeve pneumonectomy (SP) were performed for bronchial gland carcinoma through clamshell incisions. Adequate oxygenation and excellent operative fields were provided by CPB in both patients. The postoperative courses of these patients were uneventful, although they developed temporary pulmonary edema that needed mechanical ventilation and appropriate diuretics for several days. One case of patient with squamous cell carcinoma after chemotherapy was successfully treated by right SP through midline sternotomy. Adequate oxygenation and excellent operative fields was obtained by diseased right lung ventilation in this patient. The postoperative course of the patient was uneventful without mechanical ventilation support. These procedures of oxygenation in this paper are considered to be safe and effective methods for carinal reconstruction.
