Ten cases have been studied to assess the effect of Pneumonectomy on Ventilatory Functions of the Lung, to assess the role of Thoracoplasty after Pneumonectomy. An attempt has been made to evaluate the minimal Ventilatory reserve when a pneumonec- tomy can be safely performed without making the patient a respiratory cripple. This is a preliminary report of the whole project in which the cases will be followed for a period of 5 years.
