Abstract: Simple pectus carinatum can be corrected by general minimally invasive surgery. However, when the pectus carinatum is serious, because the protrusion is obvious and the bone is rigid, once the protrusion is flattened, there will be secondary depression, and the depression also needs to be corrected. In order to treat this severe deformity satisfactorily, we designed a special surgical method, which is a combined operation of Wenlin procedure and Wung procedure. Our experience shows that this is a very effective surgical method. This paper reports the treatment of a patient with severe pectus carinatum.
