Sternal wound dehiscence complicated by macromastia: report of two cases with discussion of literature.
Sternal wound dehiscence complicated by macromastia can be difficult to treat by standard musculocutaneous flaps alone. We present our experience with two cases of sternal wound dehiscence complicated by macromastia, and their subsequent healing with a combination of reduction mammoplasty and local musculocutaneous flaps. Reduction mammoplasty is a useful adjunctive procedure in patients with macromastia complicating sternal wound dehiscence.
