Bronchopleural fistula (BPF) represents a not rare catastrophic complication of pulmonary resection with high mortality rates. While surgical treatments of BPF are often technically difficult and can only be tolerated by a limited number of patients, less invasive endoscopic approaches showed variable success rates, mainly related to the size of the fistula. With this report, we describe for the first time the successful treatment of large BPF by means of endoscopic autologous fat implantation and we discuss the surgical technical details of the procedure.

Abstract

Bronchopleural fistula (BPF) represents a not rare catastrophic complication of pulmonary resection with high mortality rates. While surgical treatments of BPF are often technically difficult and can only be tolerated by a limited number of patients, less invasive endoscopic approaches showed variable success rates, mainly related to the size of the fistula. With this report, we describe for the first time the successful treatment of large BPF by means of endoscopic autologous fat implantation and we discuss the surgical technical details of the procedure.
