Pectus Up Surgery Kit

The Pectus Up: Surgical method for the treatment of Pectus Excavatum

What is THE Pectus-Up?

It is a new surgical method called Pectus Up that offers a minimally invasive extrathoracic solution for the correction of Pectus Excavatum.

The correction is achieved by exerting a lever force between an implant resting on the top of the ribs and an elevator system attached to the sternum.

With this, it is possible to pull the sternum outwards, and thus correct the deformity of the thorax.

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.

  • Minimal blood loss. By making a single incision and being extrathoracic, the patient suffers a minimal loss compared to other reconstructive surgery procedures.
  • There is no risk of damaging intrathoracic organs, as no material is introduced into the thorax.
  • Short duration of the surgical intervention, as the complexity of the surgical intervention is reduced.
  • Short hospital stay, as it is a very minimally invasive intervention, the patient remains hospitalized for a few days.
  • Postoperative in intermediate care, as it is an extrathoracic method, the patient does not require intensive care.
  • Decrease in the problems associated with Pectus Excavatum, by avoiding the pathologies associated with the evolution of the deformity.
  • Rapid incorporation into daily life, as it is a slightly painful intervention and requires little recovery time.
  • Adaptation to growth, by fixing the implant only at the sternal level on the external side if the sternum, bone growth of the rib cage is not limited and allows normal development without the need to replace the implant.
  • Possibility of cardiorespiratory resuscitation maneuvers, in the case of cardiac arrest.
