This is case of chest wall reconstruction following resection of a melanoma.
The oncologic surgeon did a wide resection of the melanoma and left that big hole you see there. The whole extended down to the bone of the sternum. The surgeon removed also the bone of the sternum.
I did the reconstruction immediately after during the same surgical procedure.
The reconstruction was with local arrangement of the existing tissues.
