Term of the day : "Pig Bronchus"


A true tracheal bronchus is any bronchus originating from the trachea, usually within 2 cm of the carina and up to 6 cm from the carina (27–28). When the entire right upper lobe bronchus is displaced on the trachea, it is also called a “pig bronchus” and has a reported frequency of 0.2%.
