The interscapulo-thoracic amputation of the shoulder is indicated in all malignant tumors of the shoulder girdle where infiltration of the vessel nerve bundle has not occurred. The saving of an arm enables the surgeon to persuade the patient to submit to this operation at an earlier stage, thus greatly improving the late results.
