Lung-Sparing Pulmonary Resections: Bronchoplastic/Sleeve Resection
Lesions involving or encroaching upon main bronchi preclude clean resection by traditional lobectomy. Options for complete resection then include proximal mainstem transection (pneumonectomy or bilobectomy), or a bronchoplastic resection vs. sleeve resection with preservation of distal parenchyma. There is confusion and inconsistency in the terminology of such parenchymal-sparing techniques.
