We experienced a case of wedge resection of the bronchus for a bronchial carcinoid of the left upper bronchus located near the bifurcation of the upper and lower lobar bronchi. Bronchial resection was performed longitudinally including the bronchial corner of the upper and lower lobar bronchi, and the length of resected bronchus from the bronchial corner to distant sites was made nearly equal. The presented procedure is useful as a parenchyma-preserving bronchial resection.
