Transthoracic access for pulmonary artery stenting
Pulmonary artery stenting may not be possible transcutaneously because of anatomic features. Although intraoperative stenting has been well described, we present a case in which stenting of the left pulmonary artery was performed transthoracically in a separate procedure. Unusual anatomic conditions may require a multi-disciplinary hybrid approach to achieve the desired results.
