The objectives of this clinical trial are to estimate the incidence and duration of air leaks and the incidence of prolonged air leaks (defined as > 5 days by the Society for Thoracic Surgery) when using the ENDO GIA Staplers with ENDO GIA Single Use Loading Units (SULUs) buttressed with Duet TRS TM in an anatomic pulmonary resection via Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS). Anatomic pulmonary resection is defined as either a lobectomy or segmental resection. Results of the study will be compared to contemporary literature for a similar population.

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
