Abstract: Video-assisted thoracoscopic treatment of intralobar pulmonary sequestration in an obese (120 kg, body mass index 42) young man is described. Two aberrant arteries originating from the descending thoracic aorta were transected with a vascular stapler, and a left lower lobectomy was successfully performed thoracoscopically. Three-dimensional chest computed tomography was used to identify the aberrant vessels. Video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy is useful and minimally invasive for treating pulmonary sequestration, especially in obese patients.
