Abstract: Wenlin chest is an independent thoracic deformity with obvious structural features. In the early years, it was only recognized that its chest wall was protrusive, and it was regarded as a kind of pectus carinatum. In the era of open surgery, there was no need to make a separate distinction between various protrusive deformities because the surgical principles were basically the same. However, when minimally invasive surgery is considered, because this kind of deformity can not be treated with general minimally invasive techniques, it is necessary to distinguish it from the general pectus carinatum and make a special design for its surgical treatment. After careful observations, we named this special deformity as Wenlin chest, and made a new design for the operation of it. Our experience shows that the nomenclature of Wenlin chest is not only conducive to the diagnosis of this deformity, but also conducive to its treatment, so it has clear clinical significance.
