Radionuclide-based calculations of postoperative VO2max are predictive of operative morbidity and mortality: a VO2max-ppo of < 10 mL/kg/min may indicate inoperability. Further, short-term postoperative performance is accurately predicted by FEV1-ppo and VO2max-ppo, but long-term function is underestimated after lobectomy.
