These results show no significant difference in using an on-pump or off-pump technique to perform a combined cardiac and lung surgery in relation to postoperative complications and hospital survival. However, our data show a significantly longer late survival period in the on-pump group. Because the off-pump patients were older and had more advanced lung malignancy, the off-pump technique should be continued and evaluated.
