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.
