Reventilation of the remaining right lung will demonstrate a relative large S3 segment, nicely supported by the middle lobe and its own hilum suggesting only negligible risk of segmental or lobar torsion. The incomplete fissure ends at the secondary carina between the bronchus of the right upper lobe and the intermediate bronchus.
The standard approach to pulmonary lobectomy has been via rib-spreading thoracotomy under direct vision. In an effort to lower associated. VATS Lobectomy Training Courses This 1 day OR observation course allows thoracic surgeons, experienced in performing 'open'. Thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy is the new standard surgical modality for early-‐stage lung cancer. 1 Hanna JM, Berry MF, D'Amico TA.
Surg Endosc30 314 Jul Switching to an anterior view, the veins of the lower lobe, middle lobe and upper lobe should be recognized Figure 6.
In case of a right upper lobectomy, we divide the horizontal fissure first and continue with the posterior part of the oblique fissure.
Thoracoscopic lobectomy after bilateral lung transplantation.
This will significantly help to complete the division of the posterior part of the fissure 5. With further staplers the fissure is then opened completely. The parenchyma is pulled into the stapler, while the tip is held in place.
