Abstract: Pectus excavatum is a common thoracic deformity. The main surgical method in early years was Ravitch procedure. Due to the complexity of the operation itself, it is difficult to ensure the surgical effect. We recently received a 35-year-old male patient with thoracic deformity. When he was 15 years old, he received Ravitch procedure in the local hospital for pectus excavatum. The postoperative effect was not satisfactory, and the deformity became worse with age. Recently, we performed another operation for him. During the operation, we used Wung procedure + Wenlin procedure +Wung procedure for correction, and achieved satisfactory results. This article reports the reoperation.
