Abstract

We present the case of a 74-year-old man with a history of a squamous cell carcinoma in the left axilla. The patient underwent a multidisciplinary surgical resection through an extended forequarter amputation with thoracic wall resection and reconstruction. With regard to the complexity of the case, three-dimensional virtual reality–based patient-specific reconstructions were used as a supplemental tool to conventional computed tomography imaging to plan the procedure. With this report, we aim to stimulate further research to improve and automate the workflow and to bring virtual and augmented reality reconstructions into the surgical theater of the future.
