Abstract With lung resection remaining the cornerstone of curative therapy in patients with lung cancer, aggressive perioperative management continues to play a critical role. This review summarizes the most important factors in successful perioperative management. These include patient selection, with an emphasis on which patient variables and hemodynamic assessments are most useful in determining operability. Postoperative management, in particular, patient-controlled analgesia, and pulmonary toilet, are essential to facilitate early patient mobility and to minimize complications, respectively. Aggressive perioperative management can result in reduced postoperative morbidity and mortality, reduced length of hospital stay and expenditures for complications, and it expands the population that can receive potentially curative therapy.
