Abstract

We report a case of right upper lobe bronchogenic cancer widely infiltrating the superior vena cava (SVC) in which right pneumonectomy was performed with partial resection of the SVC wall. The SVC was reconstructed by means of a pericardial patch; during reconstruction a temporary intraluminal bypass was set up to obtain a proper venous return to the right atrium.
