We present a case of leiomyosarcoma of the intrahepatic inferior vena cava extending into the right atrium, that has been successfully palliated by removal of the obstructing tumour under conditions of full cardiopulmonary bypass and circulatory arrest. Lesions of this kind have previously thought not to be amenable to surgery. Although resection was incomplete, successful palliation may be achieved facilitating this technique.
