Robotic Right Upper Lobe Anterior Segmentectomy (S3)
The authors present a video of a robotic assisted pulmonary segmentectomy of the anterior segment of the right upper lobe (S3) for a metastatic nodule.
The patient was a 67-year-old man with a history of colon cancer, treated previously by resection. A metastatic pulmonary nodule in the anterior segment of the right upper lobe was detected one year later.
