      As pulmonary resection for small and grand-grass opacity (GGO) dominant pulmonary nodules have been increasing, various navigation systems to detect these nodules have been reported. The aim of this study is to evaluate feasibility of real-time CT guided pulmonary resection for impalpable small pulmonary nodules.

      From July to November in 2017, 11 patients were eligible for pulmonary resection for lung cancer or malignancy suspected lesions, which was expected to be difficult to detect during operation. These nodules were defined as GGO-dominant (>50%) tumor with a diameter of 3cm or lower (GGO-dominant type), and tumor with a diameter of 2cm or lower, which is located deeper than the diameter of the tumor from visceral pleura (deep solid type). First, we put several surgical clips as first marker on the visceral pleura of the tumor-located lobethrough 3-ports VATS approach. The tumor and the first markers were visualized by cone beam CT, then the second marker was put just on the tumor based on the image. Pulmonary resection was performed according to second marker guided by automated staplers. CT scanning was also performed for confirmation of the complete resection.

      These procedures were performed for 4 men and 7 women (mean age: 58 years (39-71)). Tumors were located in the right upper lobe/right lower lobe/left upper lobe/left lower lobe in 5/2/2/2 patients. Diameters of tumors were 1.5cm or less. Six tumors were GGO-dominant types whereas 5 were solid types located in the deep from the visceral pleura; therefore all tumors couldn’t be detected by video-scopic observation. The average number of cone beam CT scanning is 2.7 times. All patients accomplished macroscopic and microscopic complete resection with no adverse events during perioperative periods.

      This feasibility study suggested that cone beam CT was safe and useful guide forvideo assisted thoracoscopic partial resection for impalpable peripheral pulmonary nodules.
