The technique of pneumonectomy, back-table lung preservation, double-sleeve resection and reimplantation of basal segments (the Oto procedure) has been proposed as a useful technique for the management of locally advanced central lung cancer with short-term follow-up. We report the long-term outcomes of 5 consecutive patients who underwent the Oto procedure.
