JURI, Maximiliano  and  GIACHERO, Virginia. Retalho Latíssimo do Dorso por abordagem único vertical na síndrome de Poland. Caso clínico. Anfamed [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.1, e404.  Epub June 01, 2021. ISSN 2301-1254.

Poland's syndrome is a malformation associated with varying degrees of thoracic and upper limb abnormality, with an incidence of 1 in 30,000 live births.

This pathology generates the absence of the mammary gland and the major pectoral muscle as the most frequent malformation. Which produces an asymmetry at the chest level with loss of harmony which leads to both physical and psychological alteration at the level of the patient. For this reason, it is necessary to resolve this pathology with the least possible morbidity.

The proposal to generate the least morbidity led us to perform a single sub axillary approach technique, through which the latissimus dorsi muscle is dissected and transposed anteriorly, obtaining a single incision, which is kept hidden under the upper limb adduced. Producing less operative time, shorter hospitalization time, reducing the number of incisions and achieving an adequate anterior fixation of the latissimus dorsi muscle.

Keywords : breast reconstruction; autologous flap; Poland syndrome.
