Abstract: Pectus carinatum is a common thoracic deformity, and Abramson technique is the most popular operation for this deformity at present. Although this technique has many advantages, it also has many obvious disadvantages. In order to eliminate these disadvantages, we designed a new operation, i.e. Wenlin procedure. We performed this operation on a patient with severe pectus carinatum and obtained satisfactory results. Our experience shows that Wenlin procedure is an ideal surgical technique for pectus carinatum, but its long-term effect needs further confirmation.
