The authors present their experiences of handling three clinical cases of patients with a rare type of tumor - a desmoid tumor.
The patients, aged between 23 and 45 years, 2 females and 1 male, were treated through surgery and underwent a reconstruction of abdominal wall by the colocative positioning of two meshes: a PTFE mesh and a polipropylene mesh. Good "mechanical" results of reconstruction were obtained without significant post-operative complications.
As to date, no recurrence symptoms have been reported although a relatively short post-operative observation period may result inconclusive.
