ABSTRACT We present the case of a 74-year-old Asian female with biopsy proven non-small cell cancer within the right middle lobe extending into the anterior segment of the right upper lobe. Interestingly, noted on the preoperative imaging was an aberrant upper lobe anterior segmental bronchus arising from the bronchus intermedius (BI). We present a case report of a safe and effective use of robotic technology to perform an anatomic lung resection in the setting of complex variant anatomy. This case report highlights the dexterity of the robotic platform and enhanced utility in performing anatomically challenging thoracic surgical dissections.
