[Thoracic wall defect reconstruction and dead space obliteration with an intra-/extrathoracic free flap].
(English Abstract;Journal Article)
Presented is the case of a 61-year-old male patient with a chronic thoracic wall defect, including a bronchopleural fistula, after multiple resections of a desmoid tumor. After partial lung resection to remove the bronchopleural fistula, dead space was partially obliterated and the thoracic wall reconstructed with a free combined intra- and extrathoracic rectus abdominis muscle flap.
