Abstract

Lung malignancies are accompanied by a number of complications which include disorders of hemostasis, such as bleeding or thrombosis or systemic embolism. This risk is even higher in patients with atrial fibrillation. We describe a case of a combined surgical approach in a patient with cancer of the left upper lobe of the lung and chronic atrial fibrillation after a stroke.
