Abstract

Pulmonary artery reconstruction in lung cancer surgery is an effective surgical method to avoid pneumonectomy that leads to longer survival times with few adverse effects. The pericardium is often used for the interposition of a prosthetic conduit. A pericardial conduit can be easily and precisely constructed by surgical stapling, which facilitates pulmonary artery reconstruction. In this report, the process and pitfalls of surgical stapling are described.
