Abstract

Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC) are common following lung resections, but there is no consensus in the literature on the definition
of a clinically relevant PPC. This study aimed to use the Melbourne Scoring Scale (MGS) to determine the frequency and predictors of PPC in patients scheduled for lung resection on suspicion of or due to cancer.
