Pulmonary sleeve resection is a complex lung resection and reconstruction surgery mostly performed in patients with centrally located locally invasive lung cancers which often penetrate into central airways and vasculature. This approach was initially used for patients unable to tolerate pneumonectomies, while it is currently also being preferred in patients whose tumors are anatomically suited. Today, thoracic sleeve resections include a wide range of procedures ranging from bronchial and tracheal sleeve resections to carinal sleeve pneumonectomies. In this review, we discuss indications for various types of sleeve resection in the light of current literature.
