Repair of concavity of thoracic wall with silicone elastomer implant. Case report.


We corrected a chest wall defect by fabricating and inserting a prosthesis made from Silastic RTV 382 (a silicone elastomer). This reconstruction in our 19-year-old patient was easier, less expensive, less time consuming, and more acceptable cosmetically than we could have obtained by using thoraco-abdominal flap.
