Pectus Up New Generation

Pectus Up New Generation: Surgical method for the treatment of Pectus Excavatum

What is the Pectus Up?

It is an innovative surgical method that guarantees a minimally invasive solution for correcting Pectus Excavatum.

Pectus Up represents a significant technological innovation in the field of chest surgery for the treatment of this condition, as it is a highly non-invasive method that considerably reduces the complexity and risks of the procedure, leading to shorter patient recovery time and highly satisfactory results.

Pectus Excavatum correction is achieved by exerting a lever force between an implant supported on the apex of the ribs and a lifting system fixed to the sternum.

This pulls the sternum outward and corrects the deformity of the chest.

This new technique was first performed in 2012. The results have been very satisfactory since its inception, and an increasing number of professionals are adopting this innovative extrathoracic surgical method.

Based on surgical practice and the assessment of various surgeons who have been using this technique over the years, improvements have been introduced in the surgical kit, known as Pectus Up New Generation. This benefits older adult patients with a more pronounced degree of asymmetry.

In 2020, Ventura Medical Technologies, after years of experience collaborating with specialized surgeons in the thoracic wall, developed an evolution of the surgical technique and implantable material for Pectus Up, called Pectus Up New Generation. With this evolution, the indication for this treatment is expanded to a broader range of patients, including both pediatric and adult populations.

Interventions using Pectus Up New Generation have been performed in Spain, Europe, and Latin America, with excellent acceptance by surgeons. In addition, patients with Pectus Excavatum who have been treated with the Pectus Up technique highlight the minimal presence of pain and rapid return to everyday life.

Benefits of the Pectus Excavatum treatment with Pectus Up® New Generation

  • Minimally invasive, as only a small incision is made to introduce the plate.
  • Extrathoracic procedure, as the plate is implanted in the subpectoral tissue.
  • Minimal postoperative pain. Only requires conventional analgesia.
  • Minimal blood loss. Due to the single incision and extrathoracic approach, the patient experiences minimal blood loss compared to other reconstructive surgery procedures.
  • No risk of damaging intrathoracic organs. By using a surgical method that does not introduce any materials into the chest, there is no risk of damaging vital organs.
  • Short surgical intervention duration, as the complexity of the surgical procedure is reduced.
  • Brief hospital stay. Being a highly non-invasive procedure, the patient remains hospitalized for only a few days.
  • Postoperative care in intermediate units: As it is an extrathoracic method, the patient does not require intensive care.
  • Reduction of problems associated with Pectus Excavatum by avoiding pathologies associated with the progression of the deformity.
  • Quick return to everyday life, as it is a minimally painful procedure with a short recovery time.
  • Adaptation to growth, as the implant is fixed only at the sternal level on the external part of the sternum, it does not restrict the bone growth of the ribcage and allows for normal development without the need for implant replacement.
  • Possibility of cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers in the event of cardiac arrest. In the case of cardiac arrest, such maneuvers can be performed.

Main criteria for the indication of a Pectus Up in a patient with Pectus Excavatum

  • Age: Pectus Up, being an extrathoracic product anchored only in the central area of the sternum, can be performed on patients of different ages.
    • Childhood and prepubertal age: Since the implant does not hinder normal chest growth, the procedure can be performed from the age of 10-12.
    • Adolescence.
    • Adults.
  • Asymmetry.
  • Haller Index: It is recommended to be equal to or greater than 3.2.
  • Others: Evaluation of the Correction Index, 3D External Scan.
  • Patients with Marfan syndrome.
  • Correction after surgery with other techniques.

Due to the ease of the Pectus Up New Generation technique, adult patients and cases with a high degree of asymmetry have a great opportunity to correct their Pectus Excavatum very satisfactorily.
