Pectus Up New Generation

What is Pectus Up?

It is an innovative surgical method that guarantees a minimally invasive solution for correcting Pectus Excavatum.

Pectus Up represents a significant technological innovation in the field of chest surgery for the treatment of this condition, as it is a highly non-invasive method that considerably reduces the complexity and risks of the procedure, leading to shorter patient recovery time and highly satisfactory results.

How does it work?

Pectus Excavatum correction is achieved by exerting a lever force between an implant supported on the apex of the ribs and a lifting system fixed to the sternum.

This pulls the sternum outward and corrects the deformity of the chest.

This new technique was first performed in 2012. The results have been very satisfactory since its inception, and an increasing number of professionals are adopting this innovative extra thoracic surgical method.

Based on surgical practice and the assessment of various surgeons who have been using this technique over the years, improvements have been introduced in the surgical kit, known as Pectus Up New Generation. This benefits older adult patients with a more pronounced degree of asymmetry.

Benefits of the Pectus Excavatum treatment with Pectus Up New Generation:

  • Minimally invasive, as only a small incision is made to introduce the plate.
  • Extrathoracic procedure, as the plate is implanted in the subpectoral tissue.
  • Minimal postoperative pain. Only requires conventional analgesia.
  • Minimal blood loss. Due to the single incision and extrathoracic approach, the patient experiences minimal blood loss compared to other reconstructive surgery procedures.
  • No risk of damaging intrathoracic organs. By using a surgical method that does not introduce any materials into the chest, there is no risk of damaging vital organs.
  • Short surgical intervention duration, as the complexity of the surgical procedure is reduced.
  • Brief hospital stay. Being a highly non-invasive procedure, the patient remains hospitalized for only a few days.
  • Postoperative care in intermediate units: As it is an extrathoracic method, the patient does not require intensive care.
  • Reduction of problems associated with Pectus Excavatum by avoiding pathologies associated with the progression of the deformity.
  • Quick return to everyday life, as it is a minimally painful procedure with a short recovery time.
  • Adaptation to growth, as the implant is fixed only at the sternal level on the external part of the sternum, it does not restrict the bone growth of the ribcage and allows for normal development without the need for implant replacement.
  • Possibility of cardiopulmonary resuscitation manoeuvres in the event of cardiac arrest. In the case of cardiac arrest, such manoeuvres can be performed.
