Simultaneous repair of cardiac pathology and severe pectus excavatum in Marfan patients using a modified minimally invasive repair
AbstractPectus excavatum (PE) deformity is present in the majority of Marfan patients. Many have not had PE repair and present as adults with aortic and valve pathology requiring operative intervention. We present our preliminary report of simultaneous cardiac surgery and repair of the chest wall deformity. Utilizing this modified minimally invasive excavatum repair provided quick, safe repairs with good cosmetic results.
