Abstract: We report 4 cases of sternal resection and reconstruction for para-sternal recurrence after radical mastectomy for breast cancer. All 4 had partial sternotomy combined with rib resection. Double Marlex mesh and muscular or myocutaneous flap were employed to close the sternal defect. Postoperative complications occurred in 2 cases : respiratory failure and partial skin necrosis. All patients are alive 12, 59, 77 and 117 months after sternal resection. Surgical management for parasternal recurrence after radical mastectomy can provide long-term survival and improve the quality of life of patients, especially those with solitary recurrences.
