Surgical Treatment

Surgical treatment of Pectus Excavatum with the Pectus Up Surgery Kit 

pectus-up-surgery-kitSurgery techniques evolve and new modifications are constantly being introduced. Ventura Medical Technologies, has developed a new product called Pectus Up Surgery Kit for the surgical treatment of Pectus Excavatum, through an extrathoracic and minimally invasive surgical repair.

The Pectus Up Surgery Kit consists of an implant and a set of tools used in a new method that is fairly noninvasive and therefore not painful, which entails a short period of convalescence and without serious complications.

The procedure is as follows: the Pectus Up implant is placed on top of the sternum, at the subcutaneous level, in the most sunken area of the chest. Subsequently, through a lifting system the sternum is raised to the desired position and fixed with the implant.


This new method for the surgical treatment of Pectus Excavatum, which is really very little invasive, implies important advantages over currently existing surgical techniques. The most important are foremost that it is an extrathoracic procedure, that it is implanted at the subcutaneous level, thus reducing the risk of affecting the internal organs and of serious complications arising. The intervention is painless and requires a low consumption of pain relievers.  The blood loss is mininal, the recovery period and duration of surgery are short, it does not usually require intensive treatment and few hospitalization days are needed.

Pectus Excavatum patients who have been treated with the Pectus Up Surgery Kit system highlight this process for being painless, for quick incorporation into daily life and a short hospital stay. This is due to the fact that the patient operated on with a minimally nvasive and not complex procedure.

Benefits of the surgical treatment of Pectus Excavatum: the Pectus Up

    • Minimally invasive. As a subpectoral implant, the Pectus Up, is used through a small incision to perform the surgery.
    • Reduced risk of damaging vital organs. With the Pectus Up technique, being an extrathoracic method, the risks of entering the rib cage are reduced and complications are minimized.
    • Quick incorporation into daily life. Being a non-invasive intervention, a short recovery time is needed.
    • Adaptation to growth. As it is an implant that is fixed to the external part of the sternum, designed so that it has a good adaptation to the chest, it allows a normal development of the rib cage, without the need to modify or remove it.
    • Prevents evolution of the problems related to Pectus Excavatum. By reducing the Pectus Excavatum, the whole chest area benefits from the treatment.
    • Shorter duration of the surgery, since the complexity of the Pectus Excavatum intervention is reduced.
    • Postoperative in transitional care: as it is a very little invasive method, the patient does not generally require ICU care.
