This book discusses predominantly pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum, its variation and the treatment modalities available, including minimally invasive surgery. This will help to increase awareness of the available treatment options to doctors and healthcare workers but will also help trainee cardiac and thoracic surgeons. It is also an essential reference book for those already practicing.
Chest wall deformities are a common occurrence, the commonest being pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum. The treatment for these is provided by very few centers and there is a decline in expertise especially in the UK due to rationing. When patients approach their GP they are mostly turned away and asked to live with it due to a lack of awareness and treatment modalities.
The Editors have extensive experience in this field and will invite authors from other specialties, i.e. chest physicians, cardiologist, pediatric surgeons, anesthesiologists, pain management team, plastic surgeons and prosthetic departments, to contribute their views and solutions to the book.

This book outlines the management, treatment and consequences of chest wall deformities. Incorporating all the possible origin of these deformities – congenital or acquired which arise either post-traumatically or after surgery on the lungs – it also describes deformities associated with spinal conditions, for example kyphosis, and other defects such as Marfan syndrome. It goes into detail on the most common congenital defect, pectus excavatum.
Chest Wall Deformities and Corrective Procedures describes the diagnosis and appearance of patients with the condition, which is important as the symptoms do not always present in a typical manner in every case. Most severe cases present intolerance to exercise, pain and fatigue, while psychological symptoms can be common, which can cause considerable patient distress. The book defines the treatment options available, their possible complications and future necessities for public education. About the Author:
