Segmental bronchi of right lung in relation to branches of pulmonary artery, lateral view
The right pleural cavity has been opened. The parenchyma of the lung has been removed. The segmental bronchi with the accompanying branches of the right pulmonary artery have been preserved. The abbreviation "a.p.d." is used in the legend below to indicate the "arteria pulmonalis dextra". The right pulmonary veins have been completely resected. The basal part (5) of the pulmonary artery has been pulled slightly posteriorly to permit better visualization of the lower lobe bronchus. In the following view (126A-2) the segmental bronchi are displayed after the arteries have been entirely removed.
1 . Apical branch right pulmonary artery (pointers on apical and anterior branches)
2 . Right pointer: Apical segmental bronchus Left pointer: Posterior descending branch right pulmonary artery
3 . Posterior segmental bronchus
4 . Posterior ascending branch right pulmonary artery
5 . Upper pointer: Superior branch of inferior lobe right pulmonary artery Lower pointer: Basal part right pulmonary artery
6 . Upper pointer: Basal lateral branch right pulmonary artery Lower pointer: Anterior basal branch right pulmonary artery
7 . Anterior basal branch right pulmonary artery
8 . Axillary vein
9 . Rib I
10 . Apical branch right pulmonary artery
11 . Superior vena cava (covered by mediastinal pleura)
12 . Upper pointer: Anterior branch right pulmonary artery Lower pointer: Anterior segmental bronchus
13 . Interlobar part right pulmonary artery
14 . Upper pointer: Lateral branch of medial lobe right pulmonary artery Lower pointer: Medial branch of medial lobe right pulmonary artery (inferior branch)
15 . Upper pointer: Lateral segmental bronchus Lower pointer: Medial segmental bronchus
16 . Medial branch of medial lobe right pulmonary artery (superior branch)
17 . Location of right atrium (covered by pleura and pericardium)
18 . Diaphragm
19 . Right pointer: Medial basal segmental bronchus Left pointer: Medial basal branch right pulmonary artery
20 . Anterior basal segmental bronchus
21 . Lateral basal segmental bronchus
22 . Posterior basal segmental bronchus
