This is a large defect of the upper chest and shoulder area which followed cancer surgery. The bare collar bone is left exposed in the upper part of the wound.
This shows a complex flap of muscle and skin raised from the patient's back. It is being tunneled through the armpit to the defect.
This is the healing reconstruction.
