Abstract: We received a 22-year-old male patient with pectus excavatum recently. The patient underwent Nuss procedure in the local hospital 2 years ago. During the operation, his heart was ruptured during the placement of the steel bar. After emergency treatment, the heart was repaired successfully, and the deformity was corrected with a steel bar. However, the postoperative effect was poor, the appearance of the anterior chest wall did not change significantly, and symptoms gradually emerged. We performed a second operation for the patient, using Wung procedure to complete the correction, and achieved satisfactory results. This article reports the reoperation.
