The indications for bronchoplastic pulmonary resections are limited, allowing carcinological resection while preserving good respiratory function, with a highly significant drop in morbidity and mortality rate. It’s about a Retrospective study of 6 cases, There were 6 women, whose average age was 47.3 year. It was 4 cases of endobronchial process (2 the right main bronchus, the middle trunk and the right upper lobar bronchus) and 2 cases of tissue mass (of the right upper lobe, straddling the right upper lobar bronchus and the the middle lobe) ; The resections were: Upper and middle Lobectomy with anastomosis of the inferior right bronchus and the right main bronchus (1case), Upper Lobectomy with anastomosis of the the right main bronchus and the middle trunk (2cases), Middle and Inferior Lobectomy with anastomosis of the right upper bronchus and the right main bronchus (1case), Right pneumonectomy enlarged to the carina with V-plasty (1 case) and Kergin plasty (1 case). The histological types were a typical carcinoid tumor (3cases) and atypical (1case), a lepidic ADK (1case) and a moderately differentiated ADK (1case). The mortality rate was 0% compared to 9.5% for 21 tumor pneumonectomies performed in the same period in our department[Full Text Article]
