Abstract: In our clinic 212 patients with primary lung cancer had undergone lung resection during 12 years from April 1977 to March 1989. The authors reviewed 41 patients who died within a year after operation. Twenty-eight deaths were from cnacer ; 13 from other causes. We inquired, from the view-point of operative indication and postoperative measurement, what points should be payed attention to in order that the operation performed may indeed benefit the treatment for lung cancer. Conclusions are that the following measures are essential to take precaution against the early death after operation : (1) strict preoperative assessment of the stage of cancer ; (2) avoiding reduction surgery-absolutely non-curative resection ; (3) keeping the blood volume transfused during and after operation as minimum as possible ; (4) preventing atelectasis immediately after operation ; (5) and preventing postoperative aspiration and alimentary tract bleeding.
