OBJECTIVE: Persistent partly solid ground glass nodule (GGN) requires surgical resection, and VATS segmentectomy is often preferred method.
METHODS: However, when the lesion is deeply seated or located close to the intersegmental plane, it is difficult to determine an accurate resection plane which guarantees an adequate margin.
RESULTS: In this video, we will be presenting a case of successful LUL anterior segmentectomy performed for a persistent partly solid GGN using a preoperative lipiodol marking technique.
CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative lipiodol localization technique enables us to perform complex segmentectomies in non-palpable GGN lesions.
