Superficial femoral vein as substitute for pulmonary artery reconstruction after resection for bronchovascular fistula
Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery
Post-lobectomy bronchovascular fistula (BVF) associated with massive hemoptysis is a rare but life-threatening complication. Surgical options include completion pneumonectomy or BVF resection with end-to-end anastomosis of the airways and reconstruction of the pulmonary artery (PA) by interposition of an appropriate substitute. We report PA resection and successful reconstruction by interposition of an autologous reversed superficial femoral vein (SFV) segment for this purpose.
