lung - right pulmonary artery branch (probe)
Back
Forward
In this image the probe is pointing to the portion of the right pulmonary artery that goes to the middle and lower lobes (the lung was cut where the lobar arteries have started to branch off).

The right pulmonary artery is anterior to the right mainstem bronchus as the two enter the lung.

If an incision of the pulmonary ligament is carried to far superiorly, the first vessel that will be injured is a pulmonary vein.
