For the type of operative procedure, it is important to document the type/extent of resection (wedge, segmentectomy
, lobectomy, bilobectomy, pneumonectomy, other) and for en bloc specimens, any attached anatomic structures received (eg, portion of rib, pericardium).
Donor safety is the over-riding concern and has been excellent after left lateral segmentectomy
, with a usually quoted donor mortality of 0.
Many providers only pay out for mastectomy treatments, but other providers pay out for a range of treatments including partial mastectomy, segmentectomy
Lobectomy was the most common surgery performed in 19 (76%) followed by segmentectomy
in 4 and lobectomy with segmentectomy
in 5 patients.
Although the possibility of cure and the diagnosis were in doubt, the patient underwent diagnostic laparoscopy, laparotomy and left lateral segmentectomy
Tissues obtained through subsequent surgical debridements of lung, pleural, diaphragmatic, and subpulmonic abscesses, left lower lobe segmentectomy
, and decortication all grew a mold morphologically consistent with A.
Examples are: oesophagectomy, distal pancreatectomy and left lateral segmentectomy
of the liver, which are increasingly performed in high-volume specialised units with promising results.

26 Duration of surgery (hours) 4.
Pneumonectomy was performed in 25 patients, lobectomy in 240, segmentectomy
in 29, bilobectomy in 7, and wedge excision in 78.
Surgical options include segmentectomy
, lobectomy, and ligation of the anomalous artery.
When compared to the left lateral segmentectomy
, as performed for pediatric liver transplantation, a formal right or left lobectomy is a more formidable procedure that puts the donor at greater risk.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to control prolonged air leaks of the lung, or significant air leaks that are likely to become prolonged, following lobectomy, segmentectomy
, or lung volume reduction surgery.
