Sarcomas, a rare complication of radiotherapy for breast carcinoma, have a poor prognosis. We describe a lady with previous mantle radiotherapy exposure, who developed a radiation-induced chest wall sarcoma. She underwent simultaneous aortic valve replacement (AVR) for severe aortic stenosis and excision of the sarcoma. Chest wall reconstruction was achieved with a composite marlex cement plate and a pedicled latissimus dorsi muscle flap.
