Question for Oncdoc


Recommended Posts

I have to say that I'm not familiar with that term but what I'm assuming it is referring to is mediastinal fibrosis. Certain inflammatory conditions or infections (TB classically) can cause scarring of the mediastinum which could make a lung resection not possible. I can't think of any patients that I have ever seen who could not have surgery for that reason, though.
