Article Title: Chest wall reconstruction using a methyl methacrylate neo-rib and mesh
Abstract: Prosthetic reconstruction of the chest wall after oncologic resection is performed by means of various techniques using different materials. We describe a new technique of chest wall reconstruction that includes the use of Marlex mesh and the creation of a neo-rib from a Steinmann pin and methyl methacrylate. © 2015 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
