Abstract

Traditional lobectomy techniques describe division of pulmonary parenchyma within the fissures for access to the pulmonary artery. This results in air leaks, which may prolong chest tube drainage and hospitalization times. We describe a technique for lobectomy in which all lung parenchyma is divided using a stapler.
