If you took the time to do something similar, going through the rib cage and pushing the organs to the side, theoretically, you could run a barrel through your chest. Probably, you would just want to do one breast though.

Presumably this would work only with fencing foils, not regular swords, which have flat blades. Unless this "fistula" happened to have a rudely exaggerated diameter that could accommodate a wide blade.
