Scout image obtained at the beginning of micro-computed tomography analysis of a lung wedge resection
specimen demonstrates the entire specimen within the container.
We therefore advocate laparoscopic wedge resection
without robotic assistance, aided by minilaparotomy when necessary for safe removal of larger adenomyomas, as the preferred uterine-sparing surgical approach for focal adenomyosis or when the patient wants to preserve fertility (FIGURE 2).
The treatment of choice for the symptomatic MD is the surgical resection, either by the diverticulectomy (wedge resection
) or by the segmental bowel resection and anastomosis based on the size of base and length of diverticulum.
The wedge resection
and modifications of this technique may serve for patients who want more natural edges.
Preoperative planning called for a 20-degree wedge resection
of the lateral proximal femur to optimize the load across the fracture.

The patient underwent lateral thoracotomy with wedge resection
of the left lower lobe nodule.
has shown that correction of large extra-articular deformities with large wedge resection
of femur or tibia between attachments of collateral ligaments of knee will result in asymmetrical ligament length and complex instabilities around the knee .
Patient developed mild subcutaneous emphysema following right lung wedge resection
was performed at the fundus followed by primary anastomosis.
Triangular tissue was removed with wedge resection
from the inferior elongated lobule.
Thoracoscopic treatment varies, involving ablation or excision of smaller diaphragmatic lesions, pulmonary wedge resection
of deep parenchymal nodules (using a stapling device), diaphragm resection of deep diaphragmatic lesions using a stapling device, or by excision and manual suturing.
