Superior vena cava (SVC) resection for lung cancer is feasible in selected patients, but the type of vessel reconstruction is still object of debate. We report a case of SVC revascularization successfully performed with heterologous 'custom-made' pericardial tube. This type of revascularization may improve the reconstruction of large mediastinal veins after their resection for malignancies.
