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, which is characterized by protrusive upper chest wall and depressed lower middle chest wall, and the root cause of the deformty is the thickening and deformation of sternum. Because the sternum is too hard, the normal sandwich technique cannot correct this deformity. We have made a special name for this deformity and designed operations for it. We performed pre-shaping on the sternum at first, and then implemented Wenlin procedure and Wang procedure for correction and achieved satisfactory results. The operation of a 28-year-old Wenlin chest patient was reported in this article.
