This video demonstrates a robotic right upper lobe segmentectomy using indocyanine green (ICG) guidance. The patient was a 73-year-old woman who had a previous left lower lobectomy for squamous cell cancer and removal of a malignant station L8 lymph node. She presented with a new nodule in the posterior segment of her right upper lobe, which was thought to be a new primary cancer. Segmentectomy was therefore the procedure of choice in order to conserve as much pulmonary function as possible.<div>ICG was used in order to aid and confirm decision making when a posterior ascending artery with an early bifurcation was encountered, helping to determine whether both of the branches provided vascularization to the posterior segment in question.<br></div>
