The 22th Annual Meeting of Chest Wall International Group (CWIG), held from 14th to 16th September in Barcelona, was the selected setting for the oficial presentation of the latest innovations in the Pectus Up ® New Generation technique

The CWIG Congress audience enjoyed three days of sharing experiences and knowledge based on innovative techniques for the treatment of chest wall deformities, allowing participants to work directly with the distributors, or creators as is the case of Ventura Medical Technologies with the Pectus Up, the definitive solution for the correction of Pectus Excavatum.

Congress attendees had the opportunity to check first-hand the proven benefits of the improvements introduced in the innovative technique Pectus Up, its efficacy, simplicity and safety, through interactive workshops and scientific lectures based on the experience of expert Pectus Excavatum surgeons.

The leading doctors of the lectures were specialists in thoracic surgery who are well experienced in the Pectus Up technique. Dr. Juan J. Fibla Alfara, thoracic surgeon of the team of Dr. Laureano Molins at Hospital Universitari Sagrat Cor, presented «Pectus Up New Generation: Experience with an extrathoracic technique to repair Pectus Excavatum» and Dr. Yuri Bellido Reyes, thoracic surgeon of the Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz presented «New Pectus Up system for surgical correction of Pectus Excavatum: importance of the correct screw fixation».

This Pectus Up New Generation is an improved extrathoracic technique for the surgical treatment of Pectus Excavatum that allows to give a correction solution to children and the oldest patients, as well as to correct more asymmetric Pectus Excavatum and with a pronounced sternal rotation.

The technique represents a major advance in the surgical treatment of Pectus Excavatum and is currently the most innovative, least invasive and least complex procedure with the shortest recovery time of all the surgical correction options for this pathology.
