Pectus excavatum is the most common thoracic deformity. At present, the popular surgical method for this deformity is Nuss procedure. This kind of operation has many advantages, but it also has many defects. Among these defects, the main defects include heart damage and unsatisfactory fixation. In order to eliminate these defects, many authors try to improve the operation, but the effect is not ideal. After long-term observation and trial, we also improved this operation and finally designed a new operation, which we called as Wung procedure. Our improvement involves many aspects to eliminate the disadvantages of Nuss procedure. Our experience shows that this kind of operation is a safe and reliable new type of pectus excavatum minimally invasive surgery.Pages: 19-21 | Views: 24 | Downloads: 10Download Full Article: Click Here
