Abstract: Sternal tumor is a common chest wall tumor. After tumor resection, the chest wall will be damaged and needs reconstruction. In the past, there were many kinds of materials used for reconstruction, each of which had its own characteristics. Since 2018, we have proposed the concept of digital material and used it in our operations. In this article, the operation of a 48-year-old patient with sternal tumor was reported. During the operation, we used digital material to reconstruct the chest wall after tumor resection, and achieved satisfactory results.
