Abstract: Empyema is an ancient and serious thoracic infectious disease. In the early years, this disease was more common. With the wide application of highly effective antibiotics, this disease has been very rare. However, in some remote areas, the disease is still common. Empyema is a kind of intrathoracic lesion, but it can affect the chest wall, leading to secondary depression and scoliosis. In the past, the treatment of empyema was mainly to remove the lesions in the chest, and no one dealt with the chest wall deformity. This is an obvious defect of previous operations. Considering the harm of chest wall deformity, we think it is necessary to correct the deformity. After the removal of intrathoracic lesions, we used MatrixRIB to reconstruct the chest wall, and achieved satisfactory results. This paper introduces the operation of a 24-year-old male patient with empyema complicated with secondary thoracic deformity and scoliosis.
