Case description

In this video we show a case of a double bronchial and vascular sleeve left upper lobectomy operated by Uniportal VATS (4 cm incision).The patient had a complex big lung cancer located on the left upper lobe with a very proximal involvement of the main pulmonary. An initial control with proximal tourniquets was performed but finally a vascular clamp placed at the origin of main pulmonary artery was needed. The ductus was sectioned to allow a more proximal control and to achieve enough stump for a safe vascular anastomosis
The recovery of the patient was uneventful with no complications
