Abstract: Wenlin chest is a special thoracic deformity, which contains both protrusion and depression, but it is not a common complex deformity. Because of the abnormal thickening of the sternum, the ordinary sandwich technique cannot complete the correction. For young patients, because the sternum hardness is not large, minimally invasive surgery can be used for treatment. We report the operation of 4-year-old Wenlin chest boy. We used minimally invasive surgery, combining with Wenlin procedure and Wung procedure, to implement correction, and achieved satisfactory results.
