The book Sleeve Lobectomy, is a collection of recent studies published in AME journals by renowned experts, which provides a comprehensive summary of new surgical developments and recent oncological results of sleeve resection of the bronchus or artery. Yet, as techniques and research progress, sleeve lobectomy allows for resections and reconstructions of increasing complexity. This book emphasizes the technical progresses of sleeve lobectomy and the extended criteria for sleeve lobectomy indications as well as oncological results with new chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments. In 2 sections, technical aspects of sleeve resection are described including VATS or RATS approach, which facilitate the realization of these challenging approaches, even the most difficult double-sleeve resection of the artery and bronchus. In addition, the oncological results and postoperative outcomes after induction chemotherapy or immunotherapy are reported demonstrating that sleeve lobectomies can be safely performed without increased morbidity or bronchial anastomotic dehiscence or stenosis.
