abstract

  • Analysis of this national database with its inherent limitations demonstrates that major lung resection can be performed in the setting of hemoptysis with reasonable mortality rate. Advanced age, extent of resection, systemic illnesses such as renal failure, sarcoidosis, and the presence of a lung abscess are independent predictors of death.
