Morphological characteristics of Wenlin chest


Author(s): Dr. Wenlin Wang, Dr. Weiguang Long, Dr. Yang Liu, Dr. Bin Cai and Dr. Juan Luo

Abstract: Wenlin chest is a rare thoracic deformity. In the past, this deformity was not well understood and its name was very confused, which seriously affected the treatment of this deformity. We find in our work that this deformity is a completely independent thoracic deformity, which has no connection with the any existing deformities. Morphologically, the most basic lesion of this deformity is from sternum. The sternum angle is convex and the sternum body is sunken, presenting an S-shaped sternum. Due to the obvious change in the sternal shape, the structures of the chest wall connected with the sternum also changed in shape, and finally formed a special deformity with distinctive characteristics. A thorough understanding of this deformity in morphology will not only be conducive to the diagnosis of this deformity, but also to its treatment.
