BACKGROUND: Uniportal complex segmentectomies are complex. There few cases of segmentectomies 7 or bronchoplastic segmentectomies reported. Segmentectomies for carcinoid tumors could be challenging due to the central location and tumor size, but when feasible, it is helpful to preserve pulmonary function significantly.
OBJECTIVE: To describe for the first time a uniportal VATS right bronchoplastic segmentectomy 7.
METHODS: A 32-year-old male nonsmoker presented with chest pain, progressive hemoptysis, and shortness of breath for 2 years. CT chest showed two synchronous lung nodules, one located in the left superior and anterior segments and another one in the right segment 7 with significant uptake in the gallium PET scan. Bronchoscope showed a carcinoid tumor involving the right carina between segments 7&8 and the entrance of the left superior segment. FEV1(L) was 3.87. The patient underwent uniportal VATS left bronchoplastic lower lobectomy and posteriorly uniportal bronchoplastic right segmentectomy 7 extended to segment 8. The operative time, pain scale (0-10), estimated blood loss, complications, length hospital stay, surgical margins, and lymph nodes involvement were assessed.
RESULTS: The operative time was 91 min, and the estimated blood loss was 100 ml. The average pain was 1,3. R0 resection was achieved, and the pathology revealed the presence of a 2.5x1.8 cm typical carcinoid tumor without lymph node involvement. The patient was discharged on the first operative day without complications.
CONCLUSIONS: Uniportal right bronchoplastic segmentectomy 7 for central carcinoid tumors is feasible and an excellent procedure to preserve lung function overall in young patients or patients with synchronous carcinoid tumors located in basal segments.
