Abstract: Background: Although there are lots of variations of pulmonary veins including dangerous type that could cause serious complications during surgery, limited information has been reported about these variations. We have experienced an extremely rare anomaly of the right superior pulmonary vein during right superior lobectomy. We used a technique called "non fissure" to manage the right superior pulmonary vein, and the results were satisfactory. Case presentation: A 66-year-old woman with lung nodules visited ou… Show more

“…Many early cadaveric studies 7,8 and recent clinical case reports [9][10][11][12] have examined the anatomical variations of lung segments, confirming the highly complex and variable characteristics of lung segments. This complexity greatly increases the risk of intraoperative vascular injury during lung segment resection.…”
