Curative resection of leiomyosarcoma with resection and reconstruction of inferior vena cava
ABSTRACT
Leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare tumor, and it needs complete surgical resection for cure. In addition, the reconstruction of IVC is necessary in many cases. Herein, we indicate the case of a 57-year-old female with leiomyosarcoma in segment I of the IVC, which grew deep into vascular lumen. She underwent complete en bloc resection of the tumor and IVC reconstruction by an artificial pericardium patch.
