Primary spindle cell sarcoma of the pulmonary artery

Primary spindle cell sarcoma of the pulmonary artery

Onkologie 2(5): 209-211

It is reported on a patient with a primary, mainly spindle-cell sarcoma of the left pulmonary artery. It is a case of a centrally located tumor, which caused a subtotal occlusion of the truncus pulmonalis and a complete occlusion of the left pulmonary artery. The diagnostical and therapeutical methods with their results and possible complications are discussed. The indication for an operation is demonstrated.
