About

Air leaks represent one of the most common complications and postoperative morbidity in thoracic surgery. Air leaks have been associated with the largest preventable morbidity associated with increased costs following lobectomy (typically related to increased length of stay). However, the standard used to detect and localize the air leaks, the submersion test, is not suitable for the standard surgical procedure, Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery. Considering the prevalence of this complication and the absence of a surgical standard of care for such complications, the aim of this study is to develop a system to create and send a glycerine aerosol smoke in the lungs of the patient. The smoke is visible with standard laparoscope and will flow though the pulmonary leak, thereby reducing postoperative surgical complications, morbidity, and length of stay for patients undergoing pulmonary resection.

Air Leaks
Experimental group
Description:
Lungs from patients undergoing lung transplantation after their removal from the recipient patient with previous informed consent signed before transplantation will be obtained. To establish a standard protocol to use our system we will use a dark box to validate that our system is able to localize the air leaks and to establish the best way to use the system. A one centimeter leak will be created on the lung with a scalpel. A laparoscope will be introduced via a trocar in the dark box and the surgeon will be asked to localize the leaks. The detection will be recorded via the laparoscope. The goal will be to perform a standardized protocol to use the system smoothly and efficiently on ex-vivo human lungs.
