Advanced central lung cancers can invade the superior vena cava (SVC). Although the indications for resection of the vessel remain controversial, it has been suggested that it increases the long-term survival of selected patients; however, little consensus has been reached regarding the optimal method of vascular reconstruction. While the SVC is often replaced during unprotected cross-clamp, the placement of a temporary venous shunt with a view to preserve the periprocedural safety and facilitate the postoperative management seems preferable. We describe an SVC reconstruction procedure using an autologous pericardial patch and placement of a temporary extravascular shunt via a lateral thoracotomy.
