Table 2 Mean percentage of preserved FEV1 of each lobe in each resected sites

From: Comparison of postoperative pulmonary function and air leakage between pleural closure vs. mesh-cover for intersegmental plane in segmentectomy

  Percentage of FEV1of each lobe (%)
Resected site Pleural closure Mesh-cover Difference
One segment of right upper lobe 38 ± 18 (n = 9) 35 ± 27 (n = 6) p = 0.77
One segment of left upper lobe 46 ± 13 (n = 9) 52 ± 15 (n = 8) p = 0.37
Apical segment of right lower lobe 59 ± 13 (n = 5) 63 ± 8 (n = 4) p = 0.62
Apical segment of left lower lobe 46 ± 11 (n = 3) 44 ± 8 (n = 3) p = 0.81
Upper division of left upper lobe 21 ± 10 (n = 10) 35 ± 15 (n = 4) p = 0.06
