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.
