Navigational bronchoscopy-guided dye marking to assist resection of a small lung nodule

Jennifer L. Sullivan, Michael G. Martin, Benny Weksler

Abstract

Electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) can be used to dye mark nodules that are difficult to identify during minimally invasive lung resection thoracic surgery. This case report describes the technique of ENB to identify and resect a suspicious small pulmonary nodule in a patient undergoing resection of lung adenocarcinoma.
