Pectus Up

What is the Pectus Up?

In 2012, Ventura Medical Technologies, together with the Corporació Sanitària Parc Taulí de Sabadell (Barcelona), developed a new surgical method called Taulinoplastia, which offers a minimally invasive extrathoracic solution for the Pectus Excavatum correction.

The new surgical technique for this pathology uses the Pectus Up Surgery Kit system to fix this thoracic deformity and was first performed in 2012 at this hospital in Sabadell. The results have been very satisfactory since the outset and more and more professionals are adopting this innovative method of extrathoracic surgery.

The Pectus Up represents an important technological innovation in the world of chest surgery for the treatment of the Pectus Excavatum, because it is a very non-invasive method that considerably reduces the complexity and risks of the surgery, which means less time of recovery and very satisfactory results.

Pectus Excavatum patients who have been treated with the Pectus Up method highlight the low presence of pain and quick return to daily life.

  • Minimally invasive, as only a small incision is made to insert the implant.
  • Extrathoracic procedure, as the plate is implanted in the subcutaneous tissue
  • Minimal blood loss: as a single incision is madre and being extrathoracic, the patient suffers a minimal blood loss compared to other reconstructive surgery procedures.
  • No risk of damaging intrathoracic organs: as the surgical method used does not insert any material into the chest for correction, there is no risk of damaging vital organs.
  • Short duration of the surgical intervention, as the complexity of the surgery is reduced.
  • Short hospital stay: as it is a much less severe intervention, the patient stays few days in the hospital.
  • Postoperative in transitional care: as it is a very little invasive method, the patient does not require ICU care.
  • Reduction of the problems related to the Pectus Excavatum by avoiding the pathologies that are associated with the evolution of the deformity.
  • Adaptation to growth: by not limiting bone growth of the rib cage, normal development is allowed without the need to modify or remove the implant.


The side effects that may occur after the surgery are:

  1. Reactions due to metal sensitivity: allergic reaction to the implant material.
  2. Screw loosening.
  3. Pain, discomfort or strange feeling due to the presence of the device.
  4. Surgical trauma.
  5. Skin irritation or wound infection.
  6. Pneumothorax in case of excessive perforation of the breastbone.
  7. Rupture, movement or loosening of the implant.
  8. Incomplete or inadequate correction of the deformity or its recurrence, before or after the removal of the implant.
