  • OBJECTIVE The objective of our article is to analyse the results of intrathoracic transposition of the serratus anterior (SA) muscle flap for suppurative diseases.

The flap was used alone or in association with other flaps and/or thoracoplasty in patients not amenable to lung resection and… CONTINUE READING
