Dissection of lungs in situ
Right lung.
The dissection has been carried more deeply into the lung. Various branches of the pulmonary vessels have been divided or partially removed to permit better visualization of the bronchial distribution.
1 . Branches of apical branch right pulmonary artery (cut off refer to no. in previous view)
2 . Apical segmental bronchus (note division above pointer into apical and anterior branches)
3 . Anterior segmental bronchus (note division near pointer into anterior and posterior branches)
4 . Anterior branch right pulmonary artery (cut off refer to no. 5 in previous view)
5 . Intersegmental vein
6 . Lateral segmental bronchus middle lobe (anterior branch)
7 . Medial segmental bronchus of middle lobe (note division into superior and inferior branches)
8 . Vein of middle lobe (note division into medial and lateral branches)
9 . Superior intersegmental vein
10 . Apical branches of apical branch right pulmonary artery
11 . Posterior branch right pulmonary artery
12 . Right brachiocephalic vein
13 . Left common carotid artery
14 . Right phrenic nerve
15 . Left brachiocephalic vein (cut off)
16 . Left vagus nerve
17 . Filament of pulmonary plexus
18 . Superior vena cava
19 . Right pulmonary artery (entering upper lobe)
20 . Cardiac plexus
21 . Bronchopulmonary lymph node
22 . Ascending aorta
23 . Right superior pulmonary vein
24 . Branch of right pulmonary artery (to middle lobe)
25 . Pericardium
