Robotic Right Upper Lobe Anterior Segmentectomy (S3)
Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
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.
