Figure 1: Bronchopleural fistula after a lung microwave ablation in a 56-year-old man with recurrent lung cancer after lung resection. (a) Pretreatment axial computed tomography image in lung window shows a 4.5 cm recurrent mass in the right lung. (b) Computed tomography image shows 2 antennae positioned in the tumor for ablation. (c) Postablation computed tomography image shows a close contact of ground-glass opacity with chest wall. (d) Computed tomography image obtained 32 days after ablation shows residual subcutaneous emphysema, pneumothorax, and multiple bronchopleural fistulae with persistent communication of bronchi with right thoracic cavity
