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.
