Abstract

Thoracoscopic bronchoplasty requires high technique to control stitching during bronchial reconstruction. Improved quality of suturing instrument may contribute to overcome this difficulty of bronchial anastomosis. Recently, a unique and expected articulated instrument for suturing has been launched on endoscopic surgery. We have successfully performed two cases of thoracoscopic sleeve lobectomy using this instrument.
