Table 2 The table shows the change in EEV volume of the RCP on both sides of chest during 50 and 100 % exercise before and 5 months after surgery (Neg : negative change). Its clear EEV of RCP on the operated side to increased after surgery during 50 and 100 % exercise suggesting a defective expiratory mechanism on the that side

From: Surgery corrects asynchrony of ribcage secondary to extra-thoracic tumor but leads to expiratory dysfunction during exercise

   Change at 5 months P Value
EEV on RCP operated side 50 % Exercise 6.5 +/− 0.6 % 0.0001
100 % Exercise 5.7 +/− 0.7 % 0.0001
EEV on RCP non-operated side 50 % Exercise Neg 1.6 +/− 1.1 % 0.0006
100 % Exercise Neg 1.2 +/− 0.8 % 0.0001
