Intra bronchopulmonary sequestration lobe chronically infected with sepsis and pain. Detected on CT scan with contrast enhancement of a large 10 mm branch direct from the descending aorta feeding the sequestration component of the lower lobe. Surgically resected by vascular isolation and wedge resection of the chronically infected and inflamed lower lobe sequestration component. The Da Vinci robot is ideally suited to mobilising the feeding artery and then ligating it with either ties, haemaloc clip or vascular stapler. The macroscopically abnormal lung is then separated from the normal by stapling across the junctional zone. The specimen is then removed in an endobag and the intercostal nerves blocked with direct local anaesthetic and a paravertebral catheter.
