    • Abstract:
      Postoperative complications following curative lung cancer surgery are well recognised, but there is limited data on 30-day readmission rates. The UK Thoracic Surgery Group conducted a multicentre review over a 3-month period to assess readmission rates. Overall readmission among the 268 patients who had undergone primary lung cancer surgery was 30 (11%); 14/30 of readmissions occurred within 7 days of discharge, with 13/30 patients readmitted to a hospital that had not performed the surgery. The causes of readmission were mainly pulmonary related (16/30). Readmission was associated with being discharged with a pleural drain 11/30 (P<0.01), having two or more postoperative complications 11/30 (P<0.01) and a patient's readiness for discharge 9/30 (P=0.001). There was a trend toward an association with smoking 13/30 (P=0.18). The authors suggest that a greater focus on patients presenting with characteristics associated with readmission, and incorporating a patient's readiness for discharge, may reduce readmission, although more studies are needed.
