The histological analysis showed full Figure 2: Clinical photograph showing appearance of the right upper pinna following wedge excision
of the initial one-centimetre nodular lesion with 4-millimetre resection margins.
Regarding the size of the defect it has been given that defects involving one-third of the lower lip or one-quarter of the upper lip can be satisfactorily treated by wedge excision
and direct suture.
The patient subsequently underwent right subxiphoid video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in which a wedge excision
of the right lower lobe was performed.
Figure 5 shows a patient with bilateral lower eyelid cicatricial ectropion who simultaneously underwent pentagonal wedge excision

(1) described tarsal excision via a conjunctival approach and wedge excision
to shorten the horizontal length of the lid.
Lawrence demonstrated that only cartilage needs to be removed after raising a flap or by making a longitudinal incision over the lesion.19 Dreiman proposed full wedge excision
of the lesion and reconstruction with chondrocutaneous helical rim advancement flap of Antia and Buch.31

of a flattened helix to create a helical curl.
Morcellation is performed with a Schroeder tenaculum (Aesculap, Center Valley, Pa.) placed on the myometrium, and a wedge excision

Complete resection and end-to-end anastomosis of a large segment of small bowel may leave the patient with short bowel syndrome and simple diverticulectomy via wedge excision
may narrow lumen of the bowel such that risk of future stricture formation and bowel obstruction is increased.
A wedge excision
was performed at the perforation site and a primary anastomosis formed.
