Take Evaluation ViewAbstracts

Pectus excavatum, scoliosis, and other chest wall deformities are common issues for the pediatrician. When are they simply cosmetic and when can they affect cardiorespiratory physiology? When should they be treated, and what are the latest techniques? The disorders and their treatments can have profound effects on the lungs, bones, and muscles of the thorax, particularly in growing children. Faculty will discuss how these can affect the mechanical properties of the chest leading to poor lung function, and how newer techniques such as the “titanium rib” attempt to improve lung function and allow for growth of the thorax.
