AbstractBronchopulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital lung anomaly for which surgical resection is the definitive treatment. Open thoracotomy is the conventional approach, yet associated with considerable morbidity. We report one of the largest series of major lung resection for bronchopulmonary sequestration using the video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) approach that could reduce such morbidity. Six cases of VATS anatomical lobectomy for intrapulmonary sequestration performed between January 1996 and January 2005 were reviewed. The six patients included two males and four females, with a mean age of 43.3 years (range: 27-64 years). Anatomical lobectomy without conversion to open was achieved in all cases. The mean operating time was 112.8 min (range: 90-140 min), the mean blood loss was 283.3 ml (range: 100-500 ml), and the mean length of post-operative hospital stay was 8.8 days (range: 7-24 days). There was no mortality. Three patients had minor wound infection. The results were comparable patients receiving lung resections for bronchopulmonary sequestration by an open approach. VATS major lung resection for bronchopulmonary sequestration is safe and feasible. Further studies are warranted to define the role of VATS in the management of bronchopulmonary sequestration.
