Abstract

A male patient underwent lobectomy and partial pleurectomy for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). After 30 days, chest computed tomography discovered a hemothorax secondary to an intercostal artery leakage (Fig. 1). A thoracic aorta angiography revealed an intercostal pseudo-aneurysm treated successfully with embolization (Fig. 2(A) and (B)). We performed a successful thoracoscopic debridement.
