Double sleeve lung resections are complex surgical procedures that require specialized surgical expertise and careful patient selection. These procedures allow for the preservation of lung tissue while still achieving complete tumor resection for central tumors. Although initially considered high-risk operations, double sleeve lung resections have become a viable option for central tumors. Recent studies have shown that double sleeve lung resections are associated with lower morbidity and mortality rates than pneumonectomy. Furthermore, double sleeve lung resections may be associated with similar or even better long-term oncological outcomes compared to pneumonectomy, with the added benefit of preserving lung parenchyma and reducing the incidence of postoperative complications.
