Clinical study of allogeneic graft reconstruction for sternum tumor


Objectives: This paper aimed to study the feasibility, the surgical methodology, and technique for reconstruction using allogeneic sternal graft after sternum tumor resection. Materials and Methods: Three patients (2 men and 1 woman, aged 19, 44, and 52) with primary sternum malignant tumor were admitted from January 2008 to December 2010 to the Second Hospital of Shandong University, Jinan, China. We conducted subtotal resection of the sternum and simultaneous reconstruction with allogeneic sternal graft. Allogeneic sternum was frozen beforehand; the scope of removal was 2 cm away from the lesion. Transplanted allogeneic sternum was fixed using steel wire and residual cavity was filled with the greater omentum. Results: Three patients recovered without major complication and were discharged from the hospital with successful operation and satisfactory results. They were followed-up for 6 months to 2 years, no tumor relapse or any obvious rejection were found. Conclusions: The freezing allogeneic sternum can be used as a substitute for reconstruction after sternum tumor resection.
