In recent years, parenchymal sparing techniques for tumor resection have been developed in order to reduce the amount of lung parenchyma that must be removed in cases of centrally located tumors. These techniques maintain oncological radicality while reducing postoperative complications. At the same time, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been shown to offer comparable surgical and oncological outcomes to thoracotomy, even in complex cases that require tracheal and bronchial reconstructions.

Abstract

In recent years, parenchymal sparing techniques for tumor resection have been developed in order to reduce the amount of lung parenchyma that must be removed in cases of centrally located tumors. These techniques maintain oncological radicality while reducing postoperative complications. At the same time, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been shown to offer comparable surgical and oncological outcomes to thoracotomy, even in complex cases that require tracheal and bronchial reconstructions. In this video tutorial, we describe a case of an isolated sleeve resection of the bronchus intermedius performed through a VATS approach for a bronchial paraganglioma.
