The partient was 76-year-old male. He had acute empyema due to lung abscess and open-window thoracotomy was performed to control infection. 3 years and 9 months later, the bronchial fistula was closed with abdominal rectus muscle and greater omentum. These are very useful when other muscles such as latissimus dorsi muscle, serratus anterior muscle and pectoralis major muscle are not available.
