This video describes the management of an extended resection for thymoma invading the superior vena cava and other essential structures, including the cavoatrial junction, right phrenic nerve, and brachiocephalic veins. The different steps and the orders in which to perform them are important. When do we clamp the superior vena cava? Can we preserve the phrenic nerve? This video provides the answers to these questions and more.
