© 2020 Royal College of Surgeons of England. All rights reserved.Complete surgical resection of a giant solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura can be challenging. We describe our technique for dealing with one such tumour. A clamshell incision proved inadequate for visualising the extent of the tumour. An additional lower sternotomy incision was then made, which significantly improved exposure. With the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass, it was then possible to mobilise and completely excise the tumour. Complete resection remains the mainstay of treatment for such pleural-based tumours. Every attempt must be made to achieve this, including any modification of the traditional approach if required.
