With this new method, without waiting for an organ transplant surgery, patients can still return to their daily lives without chemotherapy or radiation.
Until now, cancer patients undergoing surgery suffered damage from the tumor, causing obstructive movement of air in the left lung, resulting in the lungs not functioning properly. The permanent removal of the lungs, as usual treatment now, will put patients at risk, even lost their lives, until they find a new lung suitable for a transplant.
As for the new treatment, during surgery, the patient is breathed through the active lung, while the surgeon removes the cancerous lung and removes the lung tumor. sick. The lungs are then re-implanted, the blood vessels and the bronchi are resumed as the lungs and the chest are stitched up.
After the treatment at the hospital, the patient started the recovery process and the condition is now described as very good."The new method of surgery could give new hope for patients with early-stage lung cancer globally to treat the disease thoroughly," the doctor said.
