We present a case of a 10-month-old male infant with thoracoabdominal ectopia cordis, as part of Cantrell pentad, repaired using a poly-L-lactic-polyglycolic acid plate, a resorbable plating system widely used in craniomaxillofacial reconstruction. This is the first reported case of sternal reconstruction using a poly-L-lactic-polyglycolic acid plate. The repair was successfully carried out without cardiopulmonary compromise and good aesthetic outcome was achieved.
