Pneumonectomy Patient Case
Our patient cases present a real-world patient scenario and accompanying learning activities.
A 58-year-old, Martin Waters was admitted yesterday to hospital and underwent a right pneumonectomy via a right posterolateral thoracotomy for carcinoma of the lung. The surgeons removed the entire right lung, in an attempt to remove a large central cancer before it spreads, hoping to cure the cancer. The patient reports a one-month history of increasing shortness of breath and coughing up blood, which led to them seeing their GP. Chest X-rays and an MRI immediately showed the cancerous mass and a thoracic surgeon was consulted shortly after. Surgery was booked one week later.
