Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) are rare mesenchymal tumors that arise from visceral or parietal tissue. Surgical resection of massive SFTP can be complicated by airway collapse, vascular compression/hemodynamic instability, and hemorrhage. Patients with SFTP may also present with metabolic derangements secondary to paraneoplastic processes. We present a case of successful removal of massive right-sided SFTP via clamshell sternotomy and discuss the perioperative considerations for which providers should be familiar.
