- PreviewThe pectus excavatum deformity is characterised by a deep depression usually involving the lower one-half to two-thirds of the sternum. The indications for surgery are often aesthetic. Extensive procedures, requiring fracturing and remodelling of the chest wall skeleton are associated with high morbidity and high rate of complications. In this article we describe our renewed experience with reconstruction of mild and moderate pectus excavatum deformities with custom made prefabricated silicone implants.
