Chondrosarcoma is a primary chest wall tumor causing huge masses arising from rib, sternum, or costochondral junction. Successful treatment warrants complete surgical resection with wide, free margins followed by reconstruction of the bony chest wall and soft tissue coverage of the defect. We report the case of excision of giant recurrent sternal chondrosarcoma followed by reconstruction of neosternum using steel wires. This novel technique portrays steel wire–based reconstructions as a safe, reproducible, and readily available prosthetic material for complex chest wall surgeries.
