Bronchoplasty is sometimes performed in patients with compromised lung function to preserve functional lung parenchyma. Although the bronchial anastomosis was generally performed with interrupted sutures, we applied it with continuous sutures by using monofilament absorbable material in two patients with non-small-cell lung cancers to obtain a good operative view and shorten the operating time. These patients recovered uneventfully with good healing of the bronchial anastomosis. Bronchial anastomosis with continuous sutures is considered a useful technique.
