About the book

Lung resections are performed with many different indications worldwide, and lobectomy is the most frequently preferred one of these surgical resections. The first modern lobectomy with hilar dissection was performed by Blades and Kent in 1940 for the surgical treatment of bronchiectasis. With the demonstration of promising long-term survival results, lobectomy has also become the gold standard treatment method for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer. Today, lobectomy can be performed in many benign and malignant lung pathologies, especially in lung cancer. Although the basic surgical features are similar, more meticulous preoperative preparation, the chance of minimally invasive surgery and careful postoperative care have reduced the mortality and morbidity of lobectomy, unlike in previous years.

This book, it is aimed to focus on the technical features of lobectomy, minimally invasive surgery (video-assisted thoracic surgery, robot-assisted thoracic surgery, and hybrid methods) preoperative preparation, and the most up-to-date information on postoperative care.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Dajana Jusic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
