The way Tony Stark has his arc reactor installed, doesn't it mean that there will be a HUGE hole in the center of his sternum causing the loss of a few ribs, or am I missing something? :confused

I always thought there was more mechanical stuff in there and the reactor was just a power source for it all.
Sure you have cybernetic arm, but how is it attached, it is attached to the bone, to an elaborate endoskeleton for support. Sure your super strong arm is super strong(Mr Will Smith from Irobot, and/or Denzel Washington from Virtulosity), but without a sufficent support endoskeeleton your super strong arm would just tear off.
I'm no anatomist (if that's a word), but, with the space required for the arc reactor, not only would you be out a large part (90%) of your sternum, but you'd also lose your heart, and parts of (if not all) of your stomach, lungs, esophagus, and trachea.
In reality, for the reactor to do it's proper function, you think it'd need to be outside the chest, not IN the chest. War Machine wears the suit just fine without a huge piece of machinery in his chest
You'd think, if the point of the reactor is to keep shrapnel out of his heart, that when returning to the states - if present doctors and tech can't save his heart, with his billions he could get a transplant or something.
