Anatomical variations of the pulmonary bronchi and vessels can lead to serious intraoperative complications during minimally invasive surgery if overlooked. We describe the intraoperative management of an exceptional bronco-vascular variation of the right upper and middle lobe revealed during robotic lobectomy.
