Abstract

Pectus excavatum (PEX) is a deformity usually detected in early childhood and becomes more evident with the growth. Clinical and armed workup assessments can demonstrate significant changes in cardiac and lung physiological index in the deep, asymmetric and important deformities. However, most of these patients have severe psychological disorders due to the irregular contour of the chest.
