Abstract

Resection of extensive lung cancers invading thoracic vascular structures (T4 lesions) can yield long-term survival provided the margins and nodes are free of tumor. We report the resection of the suprahepaticinferior vena cava for direct tumor involvement by a pulmonary malignancy. The resection was performed without bypass, and the cava was subsequently reconstructed with a 22-mm-diameter Dacron graft. Patency was documented on postoperative magnetic resonance angiograms. The patient was discharged home on postoperative day 10 without complications and remains well 8 months after the operation. Potentially curative resections and reconstructions of suprahepatic inferior vena cava involved with pulmonary malignancies are possible and can be done without cardiopulmonary bypass.
