The herniation site was remote from all prior incisions, and demonstrated intercostal muscle denervation and radiation fibrosis. The 8 cm x 10 cm chest wall defect was reconstructed with inlay PROCEED mesh and reinforced with a pedicled latissimus dorsi flap.

John's demise was living with the problems of radiation fibrosis and limited lung capacity which eventually as he aged lead to reoccurring bouts of pneumonia in the lowest and only remaining lobe of his right lung.
Rogers and Allen [1] had shown that there was significant fat necrosis and radiation fibrosis within patients who have had this type of surgery followed by radiotherapy compared with those who did not have radiotherapy, despite a theoretically better blood supply in free flaps compared to pedicled flaps.
