Prosthesis infection after lung and superior vena cava system resection for non-small cell lung cancer is a life-threatening complication. We report a case in which an intrathoracic muscle flap transposition was used to cure tracheal fistula associated with prosthesis infection without the explant of the vascular graft.

Prosthesis infection after lung and superior vena cava system resection for non-small cell lung cancer is a life-threatening complication. We report a case in which an intrathoracic muscle flap transposition was used to cure tracheal fistula associated with prosthesis infection without the explant of the vascular graft.
