About this book

This book with accompanying videos focuses on pectus excavatum correction using custom-made silicone implants. It discusses patient evaluation, the minimally invasive procedure and follow-up care. It also describes in detail, and in a way that is comprehensible for practicing clinicians, the procedure for creating silicone implants using a scanner (computer-aided design). Further, the book presents the possibility of using fat grafting to correct this congenital deformity and highlights secondary surgical procedures and complications (e.g. infections). 
Correcting pectus excavatum using a computer-aided design silicone implant is a simple and reliable technique that yields high-quality, aesthetic results. In the medium term, the approach may render invasive techniques obsolete, however, these operations remain risky.

Reviews

“This is a unique treatise on a fairly common congenital deformity. … Since pediatricians, cardiologists, and plastic surgeons are likely to see patients with these syndromes, they are the main target audience. … Physicians who diagnose or treat these patients will come away with insights into the syndromes and be equipped with the therapeutic modalities to correct them.” (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doody's Book Reviews, October 25, 2019)
