The transmanubrial approach allows excellent unilateral exposure of the thoracic outlet. However, selected patients may require a bilateral cervicomediastinal exposure to completely resect the neoplasm. We report the use of a "double" transmanubrial approach for the resection of a giant mediastinal mass requiring bilateral vascular dissection and superior vena cava system resection and replacement.
