Preoperative Risk Assessment for Marginal Patients Requiring Pulmonary Resection
 
TITLE: Preoperative risk assessment for marginal patients requiring pulmonary resection

REF: Burke et al. Ann Thorac Surg 2003;76:1767-1773
http://ats.ctsnetjournals.org/cgi/c.../full/76/5/1767

COMMENT: this is a review of the pre-operative pulmonary and cardiac risk assessment for patients requiring pulmonary resection. It discusses the use of split perfusion lung scanning. For cardiac assessment, it does not discuss myocardial perfusion imaging, which is a major downfall of this paper.
