Event Description

Title: chest wall reconstruction using a titanium plate sandwiched between two prolene meshes for large chest wall tumours: a single-centre case series study. The aim of this retrospective study is to report our clinical experience in treating large chest tumours combined with chest wall reconstruction using a titanium plate sandwiched between two prolene meshes. From november 2015 to may 2020, a total of 15 patients (male=5; female=10; median age=46 years; age range=30-72 years) with large chest wall tumours who underwent tumour resection and chest wall reconstruction were included in the study. Surgery was performed using a prolene mesh (ethicon) placed in the defect to protect the intrathoracic organs and the second prolene mesh was covered in the surface of the titanium mesh. The reported complications included seroma (n=2) which resolves by careful dressing and compression bandaging, wound infection (n=1) where the prothesis was visible on the skin and underwent reoperation for wound closure, covering the titanium on the fifth month, although removal of the titanium became necessary after 9 months (fig. 5). In conclusion, the reconstruction of the anterior chest wall using a titanium plate sandwiched between two polypropylene mesh sheets was successfully performed, and favourable outcomes were obtained. However, further studies with a larger population are required to evaluate the safety and efficacy of this procedure.
