A 45-year-old man with bronchial carcinoid arising from the subsegmental middle-lobe bronchus was treated by video-assisted thoracic surgery. Lobectomy with mediastinal and hilar lymph node sampling was successfully performed in this patient. To obtain a tumor-free surgical margin on the middle-lobe bronchus, the interlobar pulmonary artery was retracted posteriorly, the middle-lobe bronchus anteriorly. The bronchus was then stapled and transected.
