Video 1 Right Bronchial anastomosis. Bronchial anastomosis was performed with a continuous suture for membranous portion followed by interrupted suture for cartilaginous portion with 4-0 monofilament absorbable sutures. Telescope fashion was employed in this case.
Video 2 Right pulmonary artery anastomosis. Pulmonary artery anastomosis was performed with a simple continuous suture with 6-0 monofilament non-absorbable sutures.
Video 3 Right pulmonary vein anastomosis. Staple lines of the right superior and inferior veins were amputated and the bridge of them was transected to prepare atrial cuff for anastomosis in the recipient. Then left atrium cuffs of the donor and recipient were anastomosed with a continuous suture with 5-0 monofilament non-absorbable sutures.
