The use of Permacol for the reconstruction of a complex thoraco-abdominal wall defect from a recurrent leiomyosarcoma

The use of Permacol for the reconstruction of a complex thoraco-abdominal wall defect from a... Complex thoraco-abdominal wall defects following tumor resection create a unique reconstructive challenge, which centers on anatomically re-establishing the thoracic and abdominal compartments to prevent visceral herniation. Autologous tissue may not be available or adequate to reconstruct these defects; therefore, the use of alternative options, such as non-autologous material, is often necessary. To our knowledge, very little has been described about the use of biologic mesh for the reconstruction of large thoracic defects. We present a review of the literature and present a novel approach to address a difficult defect with the use of cross-linked porcine dermal collagen (Permacol) to bridge a thoraco-abdominal defect while stabilizing the diaphragm. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
