Video-Assisted Pediatric Left Upper Lobe Sleeve Lobectomy
Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
A 10-year-old boy presented with a carcinoid tumor obstructing the left upper lobe bronchus. He underwent VATS sleeve lobectomy. Initially, the authors attempted to perform a bronchotomy with reconstruction, however this distorted the bronchial reconstruction, resulting in poor re-expansion of the lower lobe. The resection was completed to a formal sleeve, and the primary reconstruction performed with good re-expansion of the lower lobe.
