The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy of FORESEAL with stapling alone or associated with tissue sealant or glue in terms of air leakage duration after lung resection for cancer.
Hypothesis: to show a significant difference of 1 day in the average duration of air leakage between the 2 groups with a standard deviation of 3 (α =0.05 and β=0.10).

|Lung Neoplasms Pulmonary Surgical Procedures Surgical Staplers Tissue Adhesives Chest Tubes||Device: FOREseal Device: Stapling||Phase 4|
Air leaks continue to be the most common complication after pulmonary resection even using a stapling device. Double chest tubes after lobectomy is a well established method for drainage of the pleural cavity to allow adequate expansion of the remaining lung.
FORESEAL has been developed to reduce air leaks by buttressing the staple line. It is a absorbable vegetal biopolymer in the form of sleeves, CE marked and indicated for prevention of air leakage after pulmonary resection with stapling device. It acts as a suture reinforcement as well as a sealant thanks to its jellification.
Sealants are also commonly used in addition to stapling to prevent air leakage. The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy of FORESEAL with stapling alone or associated with sealants.
This is a multi centre, prospective controlled and randomised clinical study.

a pair of alginate sleeves for linear cutting staplers used in lung surgery
|Active Comparator: Stapling||
Stapling alon or associated with sealants
- Air leak (presence or absence of bubbles) will be assessed from T0: one hour after extubation, and then twice daily (morning and evening). The mean duration of post-operative air leakage will be calculated from T0 to the last day air leak observed. [ Time Frame: from T0 to the last day air leak observed ]
- Incidence of patients presenting prolonged air leakage (lasting more than 5 days). Average duration of drainage Incidence of patients without any air leakage at 24 hours after surgery Post-operative complications Nature and costs of treatments [ Time Frame: withing the first one year after surgery ]
