Abstract: An evaluation of amiodarone as prophylactic treatment for supraventricular tachyarrhythmias after pulmonary surgery was stopped because of a high incidence of the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) after a pneumonectomy. Retrospective analysis of all cases of resection for pulmonary neoplasm in our hospital between 1987 and 1991 indicates that amiodarone may be implicated in the development of ARDS after lung surgery.
