Pectus excavatum (PE) is the most common congenital chest wall deformity, but little is known about the influence of the Nuss surgical procedure on mental health of patients with PE. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the influence of the PE Nuss surgical procedure on mental health in Chinese patients and identify the predictors of psychological status for PE. Patients with PE (n = 266) underwent a standard surgical procedure by the same surgeon and did the Symptom Checklist 90 (SCL-90) and the Self-rating Depression Scale (SDS) questionnaires before and 1 year after surgery...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum are the most commonly seen anterior chest wall deformities. Recent studies reveal that minimal invasive repair of pectus deformities improves the quality of life. Our aim is to assess the psychosocial functioning and sociodemographic characteristics of pediatric patients with pectus deformities and evaluate the differences between patients operated on with minimal invasive repair techniques and nonoperated patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  Thirty-two patients with pectus deformities who were operated on 6 months or more before and 31 nonoperated patients participated in the study...

The Nuss procedure is a recently developed technique for correction of pectus excavatum. A 23-year-old female patient presented at our emergency department with clinical signs of cardiac tamponade, which required an emergency procedure. Sixteen months ago, she underwent the Nuss procedure with a single bar. Her preoperative Haller index was 5. We report on a case of delayed recurrent cardiac tamponade that occurred 16 and 18 months after the patient underwent the Nuss procedure; in this case, we treated the patient with pericardiocentesis the first time and performed pericardial window creation with bar removal the second time...

Pectus excavatum (PEX) is the most common chest deformity in children, which is usually corrected by using the minimally invasive Nuss method. The orthopedic effect of the Nuss operation is mainly evaluated by both the Haller index and the appearance of the chest wall configuration, which is dependent on the operator's clinical experience to a great extent. To improve the orthopedic effect, we proposed a novel method to individually design and optimize the shape of the Nuss bar and to advise its location as well as the incisions...

BACKGROUND: The vacuum bell (VB) is a valid and the only non-invasive treatment for pectus excavatum (PE). To elevate the sternum the patient himself creates a differential negative pressure inside the VB using a hand pump. A distance and differential pressure measuring device (DPMD) enables us for the first time to assess objectively those parameters. METHODS: After approval by the institutional review board, 53 patients recruited from our outpatient clinic were included in this retrospective study and distributed into three groups (group 1 aged 6 to 10years; group 2 aged 11 to 15years; group 3 aged 16 to 20years)...

BACKGROUND: For the correction of pectus excavatum (PE) deformities in adolescents, adults, and generally in asymmetric cases, a semi-open approach called the MOVARPE (minor open videoendoscopically assisted repair of pectus excavatum) technique is used, consisting of standard pectus bar implantation hybridized with auxiliary sternum osteotomy and multiple chondrotomies. In this study, we report our experiences, discuss pros and cons, and provide technical refinements. METHODS: Between September 2005 and March 2015, 61 patients were selected to undergo the MOVARPE instead of the standard MIRPE (minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum) procedure because of age or specific morphologic characteristics of PE...

BACKGROUND: Measurements in chest wall deformities are typically conducted using a thorax caliper or a CT scan of the chest wall. This paper focuses on the possible correlation between these two methods to validate the reliability of the thorax caliper, minimize radiation exposure, and limit the usage of expensive imaging techniques. METHODS: We evaluated 95 consecutive patients (77 pectus excavatum (PE), 17 pectus carinatum (PC), 1 mixed deformity) who received surgical correction of the anterior chest wall...

BACKGROUND: To minimize cardiac perforation during the minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE), several surgeons have suggested using a suction device to intraoperatively lift the sternum. Whether or not this technique is effective for all PE patients is not yet known. As such, our aim was to quantify the extent to which a suction device is capable of lifting the sternum with a short duration of use. METHODS: 30 PE patients received a low-dose CT scan as part of standard PE evaluation...

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) has long been considered a well-defined, recognizable monogenic disorder, with neurofibromas constituting a pathognomonic sign. This dogma has been challenged by recent descriptions of patients with enlarged nerves or paraspinal tumors, suggesting that neurogenic tumors and hypertrophic neuropathy may be a complication of Noonan syndrome with multiple lentigines or RASopathy phenotype. We describe a 15-year-old boy, whose mother previously received clinical diagnosis of NF1 due to presence of bilateral cervical and lumbar spinal lesions resembling plexiform neurofibromas and features suggestive of Noonan syndrome...

BACKGROUND: In the past decade, the minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE) has become the treatment of choice for severe pectus excavatum (PE), proving acceptable to excellent cosmetic results. Recently, autologous fat grafting (FG) has been identified in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery to ideally handle volume and contour defects. We report our experience about FG in the treatment of residual minor defects after MIRPE and a proposal for a new indication of this largely adopted technique...

The contribution of computing in the management of patients with pectus excavatum has greatly improved the aesthetic result of the reconstruction endoprosthesis. Computer aided design (CAD) enables the design of implants perfectly suited to the deformation of the patient and avoids approximations of the traditional technique of plaster mold. Although this technique is applicable in many areas, this article will only deal with pectus excavatum.

Congenital contractural arachnodactyly (CCA) is an autosomal dominant disorder of connective tissue. CCA is characterized by arachnodactyly, camptodactyly, contrature of major joints, scoliosis, pectus deformities, and crumpled ears. The present study aimed to identify the genetic cause of a three-generation Chinese family with CCA. We successfully identified a novel missense mutation p.G1145D in the fibrillin-2 (FBN2) gene as the pathogenic mutation by whole exome sequencing (WES). The p.G1145D mutation occurs in the 12th calcium-binding epidermal growth factor-like (cbEGF) domain...

BACKGROUND: Pectus excavatum (PE) is one of the most frequent thoracic malformations. Generally, the malformation is not associated with functional disorders and often constitutes an aesthetic alteration with significant psychological distress. OBJECTIVES: To reduce the visibility of the residual scarring produced by corrective surgery and to improve the aesthetic outcome, the authors propose a new prosthetic implant technique through a periareolar access. METHODS: From January 2005 to January 2015, 11 patients affected with PE underwent the surgical procedure with a sternal prosthesis implanted through a periareolar access with the help of a fiberscope...

REVIEW
Hans Pilegaard, Peter Bjørn Licht
Minimal invasive surgery has become the gold standard for surgical repair of pectus excavatum. The procedure can be performed as fast-track surgery and cosmetic results are excellent. In addition, cardiac performance improves after correction. With increased awareness on the Internet, the number of patients who seek help continues to rise, primarily for cosmetic reasons. Pectus carinatum is much less frequent than pectus excavatum. Over the past decade surgery has largely been replaced by compression techniques that use a brace, and cosmetic results are good...

OBJECTIVES: Scoliosis is associated with pectus excavatum. However, the change in the degree of scoliosis after pectus excavatum correction has not been clarified. This study examined how the correction of pectus excavatum influences the status of pre-existing scoliosis. METHODS: A total of 779 pectus excavatum patients operated between 2007 and 2011 using the pectus bar were retrospectively analysed. Preoperative severity and postoperative change of scoliosis in accordance with the severity of pectus excavatum were evaluated...

Pectus excavatum (PE), the most common skeletal anomaly of chest wall, sometimes requires a surgical correction but recurrent PE is not uncommon. PE usually has a benign course; however, this chest deformity may be associated with symptomatic tachyarrhythmias due to mechanical compression. We report a case of a patient with recurrent PE after surgical correction presenting with palpitation and electrocardiogram (ECG) showing ST-segment elevation on the right precordial leads, which could be mistaken for a Brugada syndrome (BrS)...
