PMID:  17004556     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article discusses the prevention and management of chest wall and diaphragmatic complications after extrapleural pneumonectomy, the prevention of thoracoplasty scoliosis, the complications after chest wall resection, and the presentation, prevention, and management of chest wall hernia. Appropriate preoperative assessment and patient selection, meticulous attention to detail intraoperatively, and diligent postoperative observation and care are needed to prevent these events.
