Radiotherapy-related skin ulcer communicating with a left ventricular aneurysm.

Abstract:

:Although radiation therapy is widely used to treat breast cancer, high doses of radiation may cause various complications. We report a case of a left ventricular aneurysm complicated with an intractable skin ulcer caused by radiation therapy for breast cancer. The communication between the aneurysm and skin ulcer caused severe bleeding. An urgent left ventricular repair and chest wall reconstruction with a rectus abdominis flap were performed successfully.
