Abstract

Percutaneous transvenous biopsy of an isolated obstructing mass of superior vena cava (SVC) is reported. Basilic vein access and King's endomyocardial bioptome have been successfully used. Metastatic cancer of SVC has been diagnosed and radiochemotherapy instituted, avoiding an undesirable thoracotomy.
