This is the case of a 56-year-old male patient presenting with stage I (cT1N0) adenocarcinoma of the posterior segment of the right upper pulmonary lobe. In this case, we will perform a totally endoscopic segmentectomy, namely only video display and endoscopic instrumentation without utility incision. A 3cm incision is made at completion of the segmentectomy by enlarging one of the ports for specimen extraction. In this video, only the main steps of the pulmonary resection will be demonstrated. The lymphadenectomy will be shown in another video. This technique is presented in the book : D. Gossot Atlas of endoscopic major pulmonary resections (2010) Springer-Verlag France www.springer.com/978-2-287-99776-1
