Desmoplastic reactions secondary to adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation in stage IIIA lung cancer, plus advances in complex tracheobronchial surgery, have rejuvenated an interest for augmenting bronchial stump coverage and suture line reinforcement. We present the techniques and applications of harvesting pleural, azygos vein, pericardial flaps, and fat pad grafts, and intrathoracic transposition of chest wall muscle flaps.
