In 2021, Ventura Medical Technologies, after years of experience collaborating with specialized chest wall surgeons, developed a new Pectus Up model, kit 2. This new kit offers an evolution in the surgical technique, thereby expanding the indication for this treatment to a more extensive type of patients.
This new surgical technique was practiced for the first time in 2012. The results have been very satisfactory since its inception and more and more professionals are adopting this innovative method of extrathoracic surgery.
Based on the experience and contribution of the different surgeons who have opted for this technique over the years, some improvements have been made on the surgical kit. This, benefits older adult patients with a more pronounced degree of asymmetry.
The first interventions with the new kit have been carried out in Spain and Europe, with excellent acceptance by surgeons and patient satisfaction. During 2022, distribution is extended to other LATAM territories.
The Pectus Up represents an important technological innovation in the world of thoracic surgery for the treatment of Pectus Excavatum, because it is a very minimally invasive method that considerably reduces the complexity and risks of the intervention, which entails less time of patient recovery and very satisfactory results.
Pectus Excavatum patients who have been treated with the Pectus Up method highlight the low presence of pain and the rapid incorporation into daily life.
