The chest is a very specialized part of the body providing protection for vital organs like the heart and the lung. The wall is semi rigid to provide physiological dynamics for breathing. Therefore if the wall of the chest has to be reconstructed then the physical properties have to be restored. Flap reconstructive options on the chest are plentiful. Chest wall rigidity can be provided by meshes and implants. Tumors and infections are usually the main reason for surgical treatment followed by reconstruction.
