To discuss the effect of edaravone on serum pulmonary surfactant protein A (SP-A) and arterial blood gas (ABG) in patients with thoracoscopic lobectomy.40 lung cancer patients with right side of lobectomy were randomly divided into control group (group C, 20 cases) and edaravone group (group E, 20 cases). Group E was treated edaravone (1 mg/kg) between induction and skin incision, dropping within 30 min; group C was treated with equivalent normal saline. The venous and arterial blood were collected in both groups immediately before incision (T0), after 1 h of one-lung ventilation 1 h (T1) and in 1 h after lungs ventilation (T2) for ABG analysis and measurement of serum SP-A level. Results After OLV, serum SP-A levels were significantly increased in both groups (P < 0.05); compared with group C, serum levels of SP-A were reduced (P < 0.05) and ABG was significantly improved in group E.Edaravone can reduce serum SP-A levels in patients with lobectomy and alleviate acute lung injury to a certain extent in surgery.
