Reconstruction

The Bridges for all cases

Reconstruction of the chest wall or sternum becomes necessary whenever owing to tumours the affected tissue and affected parts of bone have to be removed.

Reconstuction paravertebral

Reconstruction parasternal

Reconstruction following (partial) resection of the chest wall

Reconstruction following (partial) resection of the sternum

Paravertebral reconstruction

Dorsolateral resection of ribs also requires restoration of chest wall stability.

Parasternal reconstruction

Mediolateral resection of ribs also requires restoration of chest wall stability.

Reconstruction following (partial) resection of the chest wall

Resection of the chest wall (ribs) during tumorectomy calls for not only coverage of the soft-tissue defect but also stabilisation of the chest wall.

Reconstruction following (partial) resection of the sternum

Resection of the sternum, or of the anterior chest wall, also requires not only coverage of the defect but also osseous stabilisation for restoration of the chest wall.


Application of implant bridges

  • one implant bridge per resected rib level
  • an implant bridge comprises of two titanium rib clips and one Titanium connecting bar
  • the titanium rib clips are selected according to the anatomical situation and placed on the left and right sides of the rib
  • after precise positioning and alignment of the Titanium rib clips the Titanium connecting bar is shortened to the particular length and introduced to the connectors of the Titanium rib clips
  • the titanium rib clips are fixed in place on the rib
  • the titanium connecting bar is crimped onto the connectors of the Titanium rib clips

Benefit and outcome

  • stable fixation of the titanium rib clip on the costal arch, left and right
  • secure connection by crimping the connectors of the Titanium rib clips to the Titanium connecting bar
  • immediate functionally stable fixation of the mobilised rib level
  • the patient is mobile directly after the intervention
