Summary of "Chest Wall Reconstruction using Gore-Tex(®) Dual Mesh."

Purpose: This study aimed to evaluate the clinical outcomes of chest wall reconstruction using a relatively new expanded polytetrafluoroethylene prosthesis Gore-Tex(®) dual mesh. Methods: We reviewed charts of 11 patients who underwent bony chest wall resection from April 2006 to January 2011. Results: Six patients underwent three ribs resection, three patients underwent two ribs resection, and the other two patients underwent sternal resection. Of six patients after three ribs resection, three underwent reconstruction using 2 mm Gore-Tex(®) dual mesh, one using Gore-Tex(®), one using Bard composite E/X, and the remaining one used no prosthesis. Three patients who underwent two ribs resection underwent no chest wall reconstruction using prosthesis. Two patients who underwent sternal resection underwent chest wall reconstruction using dual mesh with or without a vascularized musculocutaneous pedicle flap. Immediate postoperative extubation was performed in all patients, except one who was extubated the following day. No postoperative deaths or cases with paradoxical respiration occurred. Conclusion: Chest wall reconstruction using Gore-Tex(®) dual mesh demonstrated acceptable durability.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.

A respiratory support system used to remove mucus and clear airway by oscillating pressure on the chest.

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.

A single lung lesion that is characterized by a small round mass of tissue, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and can be detected by chest radiography. A solitary pulmonary nodule can be associated with neoplasm, tuberculosis, cyst, or other anomalies in the lung, the CHEST WALL, or the PLEURA.

Body ventilators that assist ventilation by applying intermittent subatmospheric pressure around the thorax, abdomen, or airway and periodically expand the chest wall and inflate the lungs. They are relatively simple to operate and do not require tracheostomy. These devices include the tank ventilators ("iron lung"), Portalung, Pneumowrap, and chest cuirass ("tortoise shell").
