Pectus excavatum (PEx) is one of the most common congenital chest wall deformities. Depending on the severity, presentation of PEx may range from minor cosmetic issues to disabling cardiopulmonary symptoms. The effect of PEx on adult patients has not been extensively studied. Symptoms may not occur until the patient ages, and they may worsen over the years. More recent publications have implied that PEx may have significant cardiopulmonary implications and repair is of medical benefit. Adults presenting for PEx repair can undergo a successful repair with a minimally invasive "Nuss" approach...

BACKGROUND: An early observation after chest wall correction is direct inspection from the PE patient of their "new" thorax. Changes in self-perception may give raise to other psychological adaptations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the early changes in the fields of self-esteem, body image and QoL. METHODS: Prospective observational longitudinal multicenter cohort study. Self-esteem, emotional limitations and general health were assessed using the Child Health Questionnaire (CHQ) in patients under 18 and the World Health Organization Quality of Life Questionnaire-bref (WHOQOL-bref) was used for body image, psychological domain and overall QoL in patients over 16 years of age...

Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is a rare hereditary disease characterized by defective skeletal mineralization, and with a broad severity spectrum. The perinatal forms, lethal and non-lethal, are associated with severe neonatal respiratory distress, potential seizures, hypotrophy and marked hypotonia. The diagnosis is rapidly suggested by a combination of typical radiological signs, hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia and low alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity. In the infantile form, the clinical signs appear before the age of six months, but the patients usually have no or very mild signs at birth...

BACKGROUND: High narcotic requirements after minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE) can increase the risk of urinary retention. Placement of intraoperative Foley catheters to minimize this risk is variable. This study determines the rate of urinary retention in this population to guide future practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed retrospectively all patients who underwent MIRPE from January 2012 to July 2016 at 2 academic children's hospitals...

RATIONALE: Pectus excavatum (PE) in the setting of congenital heart disease is not uncommon. The surgical strategy has evolved over the last 20 years from a staged approach to simultaneous repair of both defects. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 3-year-old boy was admitted for elective repair of PE and atrial septal defect (ASD). DIAGNOSES: Clinically, there were obvious features of PE and a grade 2 systolic murmur heard loudest at the 2nd intercostal space abutting the left sternal border...

The management of flail chest continues to evolve as scientific evidence and surgical experience accumulates. Flail chest injuries that span the sternum present a rare and complicated injury pattern that can be challenging to manage both medically and surgically. Our patient is a 69-year-old involved in a high-speed motor vehicle crash with respiratory failure secondary to an anterior flail chest. Tomographic examination confirmed a sternal fracture with bilateral sternochondral dislocations and multiple rib fractures...

The severity of X-linked myotubular myopathy (XLMTM) ranges from mild to severe, depending on the level of ventilatory support required. Patients with the severe form of XLMTM usually die within the first year of life due to respiratory failure. Most survivors need tracheostomies, and there has only been one report about the use of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) in patients with the severe form of XLMTM because of the severity of the associated respiratory failure. We successfully applied NPPV with high-span positive inspiratory pressure (PIP) in a patient with the severe form of XLMTM, who also had secondary pectus excavatum...

Morquio A syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis IVA, MPS IVA) is a lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficiency of N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfate sulfatase, resulting in systemic accumulation of the partially degraded glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), keratan sulfate and chondroitin-6-sulfate. The accumulation of these GAGs leads to distinguishing features as skeletal dysplasia with disproportionate dwarfism, short neck, kyphoscoliosis, pectus carinatum, tracheal obstruction, coxa valga, genu valgum, and joint laxity...

Mastectomies for both cancer resection and risk reduction are becoming more common. Existing chest wall irregularities are found in these women presenting for breast reconstruction after mastectomy and can pose reconstructive challenges. Women who desired breast reconstruction after mastectomy were evaluated preoperatively for existing chest wall irregularities. Case reports were selected to highlight common irregularities and methods for improving cosmetic outcome concurrently with breast reconstruction procedures...

BACKGROUND: Pectus excavatum is classified using the Haller Index (HI) or the Correction Index. However, no correlation between the HI and CI and cardiopulmonary impairment has been described in detail. METHODS: This prospective cohort study included 99 otherwise healthy patients with pectus excavatum who underwent cardiopulmonary exercise testing and magnetic resonance imaging at inspiration and expiration to correlate cardiopulmonary function with the grade of thoracic dysmorphia...

INTRODUCTION: Pectus excavatum is the most common congenital chest malformation and is a common reason for consultation in plastic surgery. Our attitude is most often a filling of the depression with a custom-made silicone prosthesis. The objective of this work was to evaluate the interest of computer-aided design (CAD) of implants compared to the conventional plaster molds method. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We have collected all the cases of custom-made silicone implants to treat funnel chests in our plastic surgery department...

Pectus excavatum is generally considered a benign problem with a wide spectrum of impact in body image. Some articles had highlighted that this deformity can be associated with important clinical problems. We report a case of a 14-year-old boy with a severe pectus excavatum associated with palpitations who was diagnosed with polymorphic ventricular arrhythmia. The arrhythmia was resolved after minimally invasive surgical correction of the pectus excavatum.

Desmosterolosis is a rare multiple congenital anomaly syndrome caused by defect in the enzyme 3-beta-hydroxysterol delta-24-reductase (DHCR24) in the cholesterol biosynthesis pathway. Defects in this enzyme cause increased level of the cholesterol precursor desmosterol while disrupting development of cholesterol, impacting embryogenesis. A total of 9 cases of desmosterolosis have been reported to date. We report a 20-month-old male from consanguineous parents with multiple congenital anomalies including corpus callosum hypoplasia, facial dysmorphism, cleft palate, pectus deformity, short, wide neck and distal contractures...
