Özet

Background : Congenital chest wall deformities are the most common disorders among the other congenital diseases in thoracic surgery. Standard surgical techniques seem to be sufficient, but to prevent recurrence and complications other surgical approaches have to be chosen, such as freeing the sternum from the second rib cartilage to the costal arch, completely and bilaterally, and external application of Kirschner wire for stabilization.
