Resumen

MEDEROS CURBELO, Orestes Noel et al. Lung cancer and the creation of multidisciplinary groups of thoracic surgery. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.3-4. ISSN 0034-7493.

A descriptive and prospective research of 139 patients operated on of lung cancer at “Miguel Enriquez” and “Comandante Manuel Fajardo” hospitals after the creation of the multidisciplinary groups of general thoracic surgery, is presented. The design of the study was longitudinal and non-experimental. It was found that 78.4 % of the cases were resectable tumors, which corresponded to 109 patients, who were controlled and followed up for 5 years. The setting up of the multidisciplinary groups of general thoracic surgery in both hospitals, after analyzing similar periods of time previous to their creation, showed a significant increase in the number of operations due to cancer (more than the double) and in the resectability index, which changed from 45 to 80.3 % at “Miguel Enriquez” Hospital and from 30 to 68 % at “Comandante Manuel Fajardo” Hospital. In general, it was proved that the presence of specialized groups rises the indexes of operability and resectability and allows to attain adequate results

Palabras clave : Lung cancer; multidisciplinary groups of thoracic surgery.
