Chest wall resection and reconstruction

Academic Article


  • The most common indications for chest wall resection include tumor (primary, recurrent, metastatic, or locally invasive), infection, trauma, and radiation necrosis. The key elements of the management of such lesions include resection of a full thickness area of chest wall followed by reconstruction of the skeletal defect and overlying soft tissue. The indications and techniques of management of chest wall lesions are discussed in this study. Copyright © 2011 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
