Abstract

Post lung resection surgery bronchopleural fistula (BPF) continues to be a dangerous complication associated with very high mortality and morbidity. Traditional treatments have included primary closure of the fistula with muscle flaps and thoracic window formation. New techniques for secondary stump closure have included glues, stents and coils. We report another bronchoscopic treatment of BPF using an atrial septal closure/vascular occlusion device combined with bioglue.
