Abstract

Surgical repair of pectus excavatum (PE) in childhood is a well-established procedure. Previously used operative techniques to correct PE were largely based on the Ravitch technique. Since about 10 years, the minimally invasive repair (MIRPE) by Nuss is well established. Conservative treatment with the vacuum bell to elevate the funnel in patients with PE represents a potential alternative to surgery in selected patients.
