Extract

Introduction: Smoking history has been correlated to the development of atrial fibrillation (AFib) after noncardiac thoracic surgery, increasing hospital length of stay, post-operative mortality, and costs. This study sought to determine the effects of smoking history and pulmonary function on the development of AFib following robotic-assisted pulmonary lobectomy to allow for more targeted dispositioning of post-lobectomy patients.

Methods: We retrospectively analysed 353 consecutive patients without history of AFib who underwent robotic-assisted video thoracoscopic (RAVTS) lobectomy by one surgeon from October 2010 to August 2016. Patients were analysed with respect to smoking status, pack-years, months of smoking cessation, and pulmonary function. Chi-Square (X2), Fisher's exact test, and Student's t-test were used to compare variables, with significance at p≤0.05.
