The authors describe their technique for an S1+2 segmentectomy, discussing the anatomical landmarks and variations that are key in this procedure.

In this last video in the series, we examine three specimens with rarer lesions associated with congenitally corrected transposition. The first is an example of a heart with discordant atrioventricular, but concordant ventriculo-arterial connections.

In one-third of patients with congenitally corrected transposition, there can be co-existing pulmonary stenosis. As explained, although it is stated that no heart exists in the Idriss archive with this lesion, this is not the case, and such a heart in shown in the next video clip.

In the second videoclip exploring congenitally corrected transposition, we show a specimen in which the potentially corrected circulatory patterns are uncorrected to a degree by the presence of a ventricular septal defect.

We first demonstrate the key features of congenitally corrected transposition, namely the discordant connections across both the atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial junctions. The two discordant connections cancel each other out, so that potentially the circulations are congenitally corrected.

Tumors invading the tracheobronchial angle or the carina represent a challenge due to the complexity of airway reconstruction and management. Carinal resection, a complex and aggressive procedure for the treatment of these tumors, may be a safe approach for highly selected patients, in experienced centers with acceptable morbidity and mortality and good long-term survival.
