Authors: Marcello Migliore, Marco Nardini


Surgery represents the treatment of choice for bronchial carcinoid tumors. Bronchoplasty for malignant and benign conditions are safe procedure but not often used. We present a case of carcinoid tumour of the right main bronchus successfully treated with parenchymal sparing resection and bronchoplasty. This is the preferable procedure for central typical carcinoid tumour located closed to the carina.
