Pectoralis major is a superficial muscle of the anterior chest wall and can be used as either a muscle or a musculocutaneous flap.
The present study assessed the respiratory muscles for maximal effort due to the major limitation of spirometry in its poor sensitivity to detect moderate inspiratory muscle weakness14, the strength of the accessory respiratory muscles, and specifically the latissimusdorsi, pectoralis major (sternocostal and clavicular portions), pectoralis minor and abdominals, were manually tested using an aneroid sphygmomanometer (Alpk2 Sphygmomanometer, Japan) for the lattisimus dorsi, pectoralis major (clavicular portion), pectoralis major (sternocostal portion), pectoralis minor muscles, held by the evaluator at the test position and the difference achieved by the patients from a baseline setting of 20 millimetres mercury (mmHg) and the seven stage sit-up test for abdominal muscles.
