The main steps, the long-term effect of the ravitch procedure on chest wall mechanics must be the same for patients with pc as for those with pectus excavatum. Mainly for these reasons, only severe cases of pc are repaired, and the procedure should be reserved for patients who have completed their growth. A compressive orthotic brace has been developed for nonoperative treatment of pc. The pliability of the chest wall seen in most of these patients makes it a reasonable method, especially in the chondrogladiolar form of the deformity. Frey and colleagues12 and egan and associates13 reported good results, but wearing the brace for 14 to 16 hours a day necessitates long-term strong compliance of the patients. We did not realize similar good results in our few patients with orthotic braces. After may 2000, when we performed our first mirpe, many patients had been referred to our department for evaluation of their chest wall deformity. For the patients with pectus excavatum deformity who were judged to warrant reconstructive surgery, we could offer minimally invasive repair, although not for the patients with pc deformity. With the experience of more than two hundred mirpes, we started to perform minimally invasive correction of pc in june 2005. Abramson's method2 was the only report on minimally invasive repair of pc published in the literature. For theoretical reasons (ie, increased stability and suitability in pronounced or asymmetric cases), we decided to use the steel bar in a different way. The chest wall is threaded on the modeled bar, and it is constrained into the desired position. By using manual control during insertion of the bar, checking possible adhesions, and driving the bar into the thoracic cavity, major complications, such as cardiac or lung injury, can be prevented. All but 1 of our patients were between 13 and 16. generic viagra viagra for sale cheap generic viagra cheap viagra online cheap generic viagra buy generic viagra viagra without a doctor prescription cheap generic viagra 5 years of age. Their chests were fairly malleable, permitting correction of the deformity with this minimally invasive method. The pliability of the chest wall in these patients might contribute to the lesser requirement for analgesia than that seen in patients undergoing operations for pectus excavatum. In our oldest patient (18. 5 years old), less pliability of her chest might have contributed to the lateral shift of the bar. No strict age but rather the rigidity of the chest wall can limit the use of our minimally invasive repair. Although we have rather promising experience in cases of asymmetric cases as well, in severely asymmetric cases traditional open proc.
