<p>The procedure illustrated in this video was performed for a 67-year-old female nonsmoker who presented with hemolysis and a cough. She was found to have a 5 cm centrally-located clinical T2N0MX stage IB carcinoid tumor of the left lung.<br></p><p><strong>Suggested Reading</strong></p><ol><li>Cerfolio RJ, Bryant AS, Minnich DJ.
