Radical resection of a giant recurrent chondrosarcoma of the anterior chest wall.
Summary of "Radical resection of a giant recurrent chondrosarcoma of the anterior chest wall."
A 63-year-old woman presented with a giant anterior chest wall tumor. She had undergone an operation 5 years previously for sternal chondrosarcoma at another medical center. Here, the patient underwent further surgery: a radical en bloc resection of an 18 × 18 cm portion of her anterior chest wall was performed, including the proximal ends of both clavicles, the first three costochondral joints bilaterally, and the tumor mass. The large chest wall defect was reconstructed in two layers: the first with a polypropylene mesh and a pedicled latissimus dorsi muscle flap as the second. She is healthy 20 months postoperatively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
Arteries originating from the subclavian or axillary arteries and distributing to the anterior thoracic wall, mediastinal structures, diaphragm, pectoral muscles, mammary gland and the axillary aspect of the chest wall.
Chest Wall Oscillation
A respiratory support system used to remove mucus and clear airway by oscillating pressure on the chest.
A rare developmental defect in which the heart is abnormally located partially or totally outside the THORAX. It is the result of defective fusion of the anterior chest wall. Depending on the location of the heart, ectopia cordis can be thoracic, thoracoabdominal, abdominal, and cervical.
A complication of multiple rib fractures, rib and sternum fractures, or thoracic surgery. A portion of the chest wall becomes isolated from the thoracic cage and exhibits paradoxical respiration.
Giant cell tumors (GCTs) are rare neoplasms, most commonly arising in the metaphysis/epiphysis of long bones. They consist of multinucleated giant cells with surrounding spindle-shaped mononuclear str...
Tumor involving the chest wall is a common clinical event, and if there are no distant metastases, complete resection of tumor and involved chest wall can give excellent results. The aim of this study...
