Abstract: After sternal tumor resection, the chest wall appears secondary defect, which requires chest wall reconstruction. In the past, there were many kinds of reconstruction materials, each of which had its own characteristics. We use digital material for reconstruction, which fully reflects the characteristics of personalized design, greatly facilitates the implementation of surgery, and also maximizes the recovery of chest wall structures. In this article, the operation of a 47-year-old male patient with sternal body tumor is reported. We first removed the tumor, then reconstructed the chest wall with digital material, and achieved satisfactory results.
