Minimally invasive surgical treatment for severe wenlin chest


Author(s): Dr. Wenlin Wang

Abstract: Wenlin chest is a kind of complex deformity, the cause of which comes from the abnormality of the shape and structure of the sternum. Because the whole sternum is "S"-shaped, the structures connected with it is abnormal in location, and finally form an obvious deformity with both depression and protrusion. Nevertheless, due to the obvious thickening and hardening of the sternum, the general sandwich technique cannot complete the treatment. To treat this deformity effectively, we designed a special operation for it. At first, we perform pre-shaping technique for the sternum to make it have some plasticity, and then we correct the deformity with minimally invasive techniques. In this article the treatment of a case of 27-year-old patient with severe Wenlin chest was introduced. We use the combination of Wung procedure and Wenlin procedure for treatment, and the deformity was corrected successfully.
