Chest wall reconstruction in a patient with sternal fibrous dysplasia

Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon 59(1): 58-60

Chest wall reconstruction in a patient with sternal fibrous dysplasia

A patient with sternal fibrous dysplasia was treated via subtotal sternectomy using a sandwich titanium micromesh and polypropylene mesh to repair the chest wall defect. Pectoralis muscle flaps were created to cover the prosthesis. The patient had a normal postoperative course with good stability and postoperative cosmesis.
