AbstractOBJECTIVES: Air leaks frequently complicate lung resection surgery, but predicting which resolve spontaneously and which progress to Prolonged Air Leakage (PAL) has hitherto been difficult. METHODS: Clinical data for 124 consecutive patients who received curative major lung resection by a single surgeon and who had complete chest drainage records were reviewed. All patients had one chest tube connected to either a conventional water seal chest drain system (group WS: n=69, 56%) or a digital chest drain system (group D: n=55, 44%) depending on availability of …
