PMID:  19161734     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Anatomical variations of the pulmonary vessels present a potential risk of intraoperative bleeding and damage to pulmonary circulation during pulmonary resection. We present details of a dangerous variation of the superior pulmonary vein associated with thoracoscopic right lower lobectomy that could potentially be divided if there was no preoperative foreknowledge of individual vessel configurations.
