Any surgical technique is preceded by some sort of emotional reaction. Although surgical interventions can be a relief, the psychological suffering and the preoperative stress can delay the postoperative recovery. In the full knowledge of that situation, besides we will indicate you what the meaning of surgery is, we will deliver to you a dossier where it is indicated all normal and abnormal symptoms that you may feel. In this way we will avoid the feelings of uncertainty which precede and continue to the surgery because you will be aware at all times what you can feel and do. It is enormously beneficial having this type of information so that you have a better and shorter postoperative.
In the pre-operative consultation will take place a clinic history in which you will be asked by your backgrounds. In general, the preoperative study consists of a conventional analytical, a study of coagulation and an electrocardiogram.
In addition, sometimes it is required of a chest x-ray (especially in older than 45 years, smokers or previous pulmonary Pathology).
