This video demonstrates a complex segmental resection via the uniportal VATS technique in a 65-year-old woman with a lesion located between S2 and S6 of the right lung. The lesion was avid in a PET-CT scan with no mediastinal uptake. The decision to perform an anatomical segmentectomy was taken in order to avoid a pneumonectomy. The video also shows some anatomical variations. The operative and postoperative courses were uneventful, and the patient discharged home on postoperative day four. The final diagnosis was adenocarcinoma.
