We successfully performed a total resection of the pulmonary artery trunk and replaced it with an equine pericardial xenograft roll in a patient with a recurrent leiomyosarcoma. We believe, based on anatomic and embryologic principles, total rather than partial resection of the pulmonary artery trunk should be the treatment of choice for primary leiomyosarcomas of the pulmonary artery.
