Miller's knot case study: step 3

Here you see the lung lobe with the sections of stick removed and after the application of two of the three Kelly forceps on its pedicle. (Note: At times only two clamps may be applied. In this case the lobe is removed without a clamp on the “specimen side.”) The patient made an uneventful recovery.
