Hiroaki Kuroda, Mingyon Mun, Ken Nakagawa, Sakae Okumura, Yukinori Sakao


We present two patients with lung adenocarcinomas in the right upper S2 (posterior segment) with anomalous structures (a displaced B2 and the upper lobe vein posterior to the bronchus intermedius), who underwent thoracoscopic right posterior-segment segmentectomy (case 1) and thoracoscopic right upper lobectomy (case 2). Sufficient preoperative examination can significantly aid thoracoscopic surgery (TS). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a TS together with an anomalous vein and displaced bronchus.
