Severe diffuse chronic calcification can cause an unsuccessful closure of the bronchial stump. An opened stump must be closed with a tissue flap without fixation using the bronchial wall. We performed successful volume double-layered dressing using a technique whereby we divided the latissimus dorsi muscle above and below the left pulmonary artery over the open stump of a severely calcified bronchus.
