Abstract

: Butterfly-needle video-assisted segmentectomy is a useful technique. Selective segmental inflation allows the intersegmental plane to be identified completely under the surgeon's control, eliminating the need for an anesthesiologist to pass a bronchoscope or insufflate the lung in a particular manner.
