Case description

In this video case we show a very unusual and rare case of carcinoid tumor located on the right main bronchus. The lung was hyper inflated (Trapped air) due to tumor obstruction so the exposure was challening until the bronchus was totally incised. The patient was operated during live surgery and an Uniportal VATS bronchial resection was performed with no lung resection (sparing lung). The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged home on the 3rd postoperative day with no complications Dr Gonzalez Rivas Dr Rodrigo Sanderberg.
