Abstract: Operation of chest wall tumor is generally divided into two parts, namely tumor resection and chest wall reconstruction. Tumor resection requires complete removal of the tumor, so as to maximize the prevention of recurrence. If the tumor is not completely removed, the tumor is likely to recur. Chest wall reconstruction is generally required after a large range of chest wall structures are removed. We recently received a 29-year-old male patient with chest wall malignant tumor. In the past three years, he had undergone three tumor resection operations and multiple chemotherapy at the local hospital. However, the tumor recurred again six months ago and grew rapidly. We performed the fourth operation for him. In addition to removing the tumor itself, we also partially removed the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th ribs connected with the tumor, and then reconstructed the chest wall with MatrixRIB plates. This article reports the operation of this patient.
