Materials and Methods

In 19th May 2021, 62 experts in the world were summoned to Xi'an (Shaanxi Province, China) to discuss the controversial points of the chest wall tumor, and other 23 experts responded by email with their views on the controversial issues. The experts in the study were selected according to the job title, regional distribution, and the independent surgical experience on chest wall tumor. All the controversial questions were distributed to the participants in the form of questionnaires, including rare tumor surgery feasibility, selection of resection margin, re-resection scope and standard of timing, chest wall sarcomas staging, reconstruction of chest wall defect, choice of implants, treatment for T3–4 stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) invading the chest wall, etc. All of results in the questionnaire were summarized and the approve rate of every controversial question was counted. The approve rate was shown in every consensus to represent the opinion of experts on this controversial point. The conclusions were given different levels of recommendation according to the following criteria: category 1 (the expert approval rate is over 80%), category 2 (the expert approval rate is 60–80%), category 3 (the expert approval rate is 40–60%). The new version of the expert consensus about chest wall tumor was formed according the above conclusions. The authors are accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.
