2,5) A transected
bile duct draining a segment or a smaller part of the liver can be safely ligated before it becomes colonized with bacteria and fungi.
Although three-dimensional CT and multidetector CT have been developed to detect pulmonary vessel variations preoperatively, incidental transection of the common trunk may be unavoidable when the pulmonary vein is anteriorly transected
with no identification of the inferior vein during left upper lobectomy.
As illustrated in Figure 1 (compare C with D), no change in darkfield light scattering was detected in these or other transected
axons (n = 12); and as illustrated in Figure 1 (compare E with F), the cytoskeletal elements appeared normal in the transected
axon, and the mitochondria were not swollen (n = 10).
The base of the lesion was transected
with microlaryngeal scissors.
In sinking the shaft, the vein was transected
at a depth of 205 feet, where it dipped into the shaft.
