What is Pectus Excavatum?

Pectus Excavatum, also known as a sunken chest, is a deformity of the chest where the sternum and ribs are pushed inward, creating a concave appearance in the chest. In women, just like in men, this condition can cause aesthetic concerns, self-esteem issues, and in some severe cases, health problems.

Symptoms of Pectus Excavatum in Women

Symptoms in women can range from mild to severe. Some women may experience difficulty breathing, especially during intense physical activity. Chest and back pain are also common, as well as a feeling of pressure in the heart area. These symptoms can impact the quality of life and limit participation in everyday activities.

Causes of Pectus Excavatum in Women

The exact cause is not fully understood, but it is believed to have a genetic component. Often, the condition appears in families with a history of Pectus Excavatum. It is important to note that it is not caused by any specific action or habit.

Treatment for Pectus Excavatum in Women

The treatment for women depends on the severity of the condition and the symptoms each person presents. In mild cases, regular observation without medical or surgical intervention may be recommended. However, in more severe cases or when symptoms significantly interfere with the quality of life, treatment options may include:

  1. Corrective surgery using Pectus Up New Generation: A minimally invasive procedure that corrects Pectus Excavatum with a small incision and without the need to enter the thoracic cavity.
