We describe the techniques we used for treating aberrant arteries during resection of pulmonary sequestration by video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) in two patients. In patient 1, the aberrant artery was transected after securing six rows of staples with a knifeless vascular endostapler. In patient 2, the aberrant artery was cut after ligation with special forceps that designed by one of us (S.K.) to push a knot, tied outside the body, into the thoracic cavity, then ligate the suture. Left lower lobectomy and right basal segmentectomy were both successfully performed by these methods. These two cases are reported to show that VATS lobectomy is a feasible and minimally invasive technique of treating pulmonary sequestration and other diseases of the lung.
