Abstract

Sternal resection represents a rare, peculiar subgroup of chest wall operations. Abdominal or lung hernia could be a serious complication after extended chest wall or sternal resection for cancer. We present a case of a late abdominal hernia in the chest underneath the skin, 7 years after a total sternal resection for a sarcoma.
