Sleeve Resection

Conditions Related to Sleeve Resection

A leading cause of cancer deaths in the United Stages, lung cancer and related conditions can require aggressive surgical treatment. Sleeve resection may be recommended when the cancer is located in a bronchus.

Lung cancer usually begins in the bronchi and spreads through the lungs and the body through the surrounding tissue, lymph system or blood system. By removing the tumor and the affected tissue in the bronchus with sleeve resection, surgeons eliminate the threat of cancer spreading.
