Résumé

Pneumonectomy is known to be associated with a high rate of morbidity and mortality and may be contraindicated in patients with altered lung function. Sleeve lobectomy is a treatment option, but it may be technically impossible in cases of large bronchial involvement. Here, we describe a patient with impaired lung function and right upper lobe lung cancer that involved the intermediate bronchial trunk. The patient was treated successfully with a right upper sleeve lobectomy and bronchial replacement with the use of a thoracodorsal artery perforator flap and a temporary endostent. Clinical outcomes were favorable, and no recurrence has been observed in the 4 years since the operation. (C) 2018 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons
