Thoracoscopic S8 segmentectomy

Agathe Seguin-Givelet, Emmanuel Brian, Madalina Grigoroiu, Dominique Gossot


Thoracoscopic S8 segmentectomy is a rather straightforward procedure when performed on the left side, but a bit more difficult on the right side due to the presence of S7 segment. Variations in the bronchovascular anatomy deserve to be known in order not confusing an A8 artery with a common A8+9 trunk. The use of preoperative modelisation of bronchovascular anatomy is highly recommended.
