This video describes a lingula-sparing left upper lobectomy for a T1aN0 non-small cell lung carcinoma of the posterior segment of the upper lobe. This procedure is the equivalent to a right upper lobectomy with preservation of the middle lobe. As recently reported, it gives the same result and same survival as an upper lobectomy for stage 1 lung cancer.
