Abstract: Postoperative pulmonary function is essential for ensuring the quality of life for aged lung cancer patients who underwent pulmonary resection. The operative procedures of bronchoplasty and pulmonary angioplasty are reliable for maintaining pulmonary function. The values of this procedures were evaluated on the basis of clinical experience. Pulmonary angioplasty which was concurently performed in 28 patients with bronchoplasty (29.2 %) and in eight with lobectomy was subjected to this study in relation to the survival and postoperative pulmonary function. The operative procedure of pulmonary angioplasty was of great use to preserve the pulmonary function as well as to predict the favorable survival in the selected patients with localized hilar carcinoma of squamous cell carcinoma and with no nodal involvement In addition, direct cancer infiltration to the wall of the pulmonary artery is better candidate rather than by way of metastatic nodes with respect to the survival. In conclusion, pulmonary angioplasty should be widely used in combination with lobectomy and brochoplasty to ensure high quality of life following pulmonary resection.
