For bilobectomy or pneumonectomy specimens in which separate tumor nodules are identified (see below), the location of each tumor nodule should be clearly specified, as assignment of stage is dependent on whether nodules are within the same lobe or different lobes.
Pleurectomy/decortication is superior to extrapleural pneumonectomy in the multimodality management of patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma.
One was due to anticoagulation for pulmonary thromboembolism from a right heart mural thrombus, which developed after a pneumonectomy caused right heart failure.

Both of the cases were remarkable for new and old scarring lesions at the time of explant pneumonectomy. Also selected were 2 cases of nonexposure obliterative bronchiolitis, including one transplant pneumonectomy for idiopathic obliterative bronchiolitis and a second case of post-transplantation obliterative bronchiolitis diagnosed in a post-transplantation wedge biopsy specimen.
Occult disease in both resection margins from extrapleural pneumonectomy and lymph nodes also negatively impacts survival, and the use of immunohistochemistry should be considered strongly for evaluating these specimens when no tumor is identified in hematoxylin-eosin preparations.
The nonresponder group included 1 pneumonectomy, 12 lobectomies, 5 wedge resections, 3 lung biopsies, 1 lymph node biopsy with metastatic disease, and 1 cytology cellblock from a lung fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
