Case description

Advanced chest wall reconstruction with titanium for patient with previous cardiac herniation.

Chest wall reconstruction is a surgical procedure that involves rebuilding or repairing the chest wall. This can be necessary due to a variety of medical conditions or trauma. Some common reasons for chest wall reconstruction include:

Removal of tumors: If a tumor or cancerous growth is removed from the chest wall, reconstruction may be needed to restore its structural integrity.

Trauma: Severe injuries to the chest wall, such as fractures or deformities, may require surgical reconstruction.

Infection: In cases of severe infection or damage to the chest wall, surgical reconstruction may be necessary to restore normal function.

Congenital deformities: Some individuals are born with chest wall deformities, such as pectus excavatum or pectus carinatum, which may be corrected through surgical reconstruction.

The specific surgical approach for chest wall reconstruction can vary based on the underlying condition and the patient's individual needs. It may involve the use of prosthetic materials, grafts, or other surgical techniques to repair and rebuild the chest wall.
