Staged Repair of an Aortic Pseudoaneurysm Secondary to Delayed Methylmethacrylate Plate Migration
MetadataShow full item record
Methylmethacrylate is a prosthetic material commonly used for the reconstruction of large chest wall defects. We present the first reported case of delayed methylmethacrylate plate migration, which resulted in an aortic pseudoaneurysm with aortopulmonary fistula. Treatment management, including staged repair combining endovascular and open approaches, is also discussed.
