Pectus Excavatum and Poland Syndrome Surgery, Custom-Made Silicone Implants by Computer Aided Design

  • Provides step-by-step information on the CAD of anatomic implants
  • Discusses complications of this minimally invasive surgery
  • Edited by an expert of CAD custom-made implants

This book with accompanying videos focuses on Pectus Excavatum and Poland Syndrome correction using custom made silicone implants. It discusses the functional respiratory & cardiorespiratory impact, patient evaluation, the minimally invasive procedure and follow-up care. It also describes in detail, and in a way that is comprehensible for practicing clinicians, the procedure for creating silicone implants using a scanner (computer-aided design). Further, the book presents the possibility of using fat grafting to correct this congenital deformity and highlights secondary surgical procedures and complications (e.g. infections).

Correcting Pectus Excavatum and Poland Syndrome using a computer-aided design silicone implant is a simple and reliable technique that yields high-quality, aesthetic results. In the medium term, the approach may render invasive orthopaedic techniques obsolete, however, these operations remain risky.
