Wrapping of the bronchial anastomosis with a pedicled tissue flap was not performed in this series. Only one patient developed a complication of the bronchial anastomosis without a need for specific intervention. No bronchial or bronchovascular fistulas were observed. The authors conclude that sleeve resection without wrapping of the bronchial anastomosis is a safe
