Pectus excavatum is one of the most common congenital chest wall deformities, in which the sternum and the adjacent costal cartilages are displaced posteriorly. Physiological limitations and psychological impacts of the deformity may occur as the patient ages and the chest wall becomes more rigid. Adult patients can undergo surgical correction of their deformity with excellent results. A minimally invasive approach to the repair of adult patients can be successfully utilized.
