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

Abstract: Wenlin chest is a rare deformity, which was previously regarded as a kind of pectus carinatum. Due to its special structure, it should be an independent deformity. The obvious feature of this deformity is that it includes both protrusion and depression on the anterior chest wall, which is a special type of complex deformity. Because of the abnormal thickening of the sternum, the general sandwich technique cannot obtain satisfactory results. We used special pre-shaping technique for preparation, and then used Wenlin procedure and Wang procedure for correction, and achieved good results. This article introduces the operation of a 22-year-old male Wenlin chest patient.
