Summary Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) as a treatment for end-stage pulmonary emphysema has inspired enthusiasm, controversy, and confusion. In Lung Volume Reduction Surgery, a panel of recognized authorities comprehensively review the medical, surgical, and pathophysiologic issues relevant to LVRS for emphysema. Topics range from the open technique and video-assisted thoracoscopic approaches to LVRS, to anesthetic management, to perioperative and nursing care of the patient. The experts also detail the selection of candidates for LVRS, the clinical trials and results in LVRS, and the effects of LVRS on survival rates. Background material addresses the clinical and basic science aspects of emphysema, including its pathogenesis and pathophysiology, its cardiovascular effects, its medical management, and its evaluation with exercise testing. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Lung Volume Reduction Surgery offers pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and internists an authoritative survey of the state-of-the-art in pulmonary emphysema-its measurement, its causes, and its diagnosis-as well as the revolutionary emergence of lung volume reduction surgery and its management today.
