We describe a case of a patient who, 14 years after a pneumonectomy, required surgery for a life-threatening air-leak following accidental intubation of an emphysematous bulla in his remaining lung. To facilitate treatment by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, veno-venous extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation was employed.
