Abstract

20 cases of malignant tumors of the chest wall underwent surgical therapy from 1980 to 1986. All patients were submitted to radical surgery consisting in dissecting the pleura for a perioperative verification with excision of wide margins in musculoskeletal. Reconstruction was performed without prosthetic replacement, according to the method of simple myoplasty. After an average follow-up of 74 months 9 patients are live; 11 cases decreased meanly at 37 months from surgery for local recurrence. It's therefore suggested the utility of surgical therapy instead of other therapeutical approach.
