Pectus Excavatum & Poland Syndrome Corrective Surgery
Also referred to as ‘sunken’ or ‘fallen’ chest, Pectus excavatum is the most common thorax deformity, affecting 1 in 300-1000 births. The condition occurs when the cartilage malforms between the ribs and chest plate. As a result the chest bone is restricted and starts to point inwards, creating a concave appearance to the sternum. The condition is often exacerbated during puberty when ‘growth spurts’ occur.
Poland syndrome is a rare birth defect characterised by partial or total absence of chest muscle on one side of the body, as well as webbing of the fingers. The chest deformity that occurs is anatomically unique in each case, but in general it demonstrates as a dip below the clavicle in men and breast asymmetry in women.
Corrective surgery using AnatomikModeling offers a highly effective solution for both conditions. The treatment uses customised implants that adapt perfectly to the patient’s anatomy. It’s less invasive compared to some older, traditional techniques and provides instant results with minimal pain. The results can have profound effects on self-confidence and body image, making people feel more comfortable in their own skin.
