Background. Research objective is to assess the effectiveness of glue anchoring of machine stitch of pulmonary parenchyma.
Methods. Aerostasis effectiveness was analyzed in 148 patients who had lung surgery with the use of different stapling devices in combination with and without glue sealing method.
Results. The use of additional glue sealing significantly increased the measures of early aerostasis from 45.2 to 72.9 % with the singleuse stapling device and from 7.7 to 40.6 % with reusable stapling device. Effectiveness indexes of the stitch sealing within twenty four hours also increased with ease: with the single-use stapling device and from 78.6 to 97.9 %, and with reusable stapling device from 84.6 to 93.7 %.
Conclusions. Additional glue sealing leads to reliability improvement of lung machine stitch and to cutting time of deaeration from pleural cavity after surgery.
