In Russia, developed a method for the treatment of lung cancer without their complete removal

Currently in Russia there are about 60 000 patients with lung cancer, with 80% of them cannot be cured by surgical methods. Those who do not conduct operations, usually completely remove the diseased lung, but later these patients still die, not from cancer, from heart pathologies. In St. Petersburg SMRC Oncology named after N. N. Petrov developed a method of surgical treatment of lung cancer, which does not imply their complete removal. It further allows patients to lead a quiet life without complications.

The Method is called bronhospasticescoe lobectomy, which means removal of the tumor with preservation of the healthy part of the body. The surgeons connect the two bronchus by entering one of them in another. This approach allows you to close established in the course of the operation channel of the hollow organs of native muscle flap patient. Then the person has less risk of complications, whereas complete removal of the lung it can cause fatal heart problems.

The Surgical technique has already proven itself in practice. In 2018, the surgeon Evgeny Levchenko had 50 such operations, and to date, his score is 260 in this way saved lives. On average in Russia in lung cancer bronchoplastic applies only in 5-10% of cases, but in the SMRC of Oncology named after N. N. Petrov he's already applied much more frequently than total removal of the organ.

This operation is extremely difficult, and it required not only a skilled surgeon but also a reliable team of anesthesiologists and resuscitation specialists. Yevgen Levchenko gave a master class in conducting bronchoplastic, which was attended by more than 100 physicians. It is not excluded that such an approach was used in medicine before, just it was not documented.

Recall that in 2018, scientists have developed a method of detecting lung cancer at its early stages. For this purpose, the analysis of exosomes contained in the blood and saliva of man. More information can be read .
