Sternal resection and anterior chest wall reconstruction techniques for malignant processes are not always standardized. We report an innovative method of sternal osteosynthesis in two patients, 65-year-old and 41-year-old women, with Ewing's sarcoma, and infiltrating thymoma, respectively. The first case manifested itself as a voluminous palpable mass while the second case was characterized for a paramediastinal mass widely extended to the anterior chest wall. Reconstruction with titanium mesh allowed the quick restoration of parietal stability, facilitating respiratory dynamic and recovery of patients.
