Pure pectus carinatum (not associated with pectus excavatum) solved by MIRPC (minimally invasive repair of pectus carinatum) associated with bilateral mamarian hypoplasia solved by bilateral breast implants.


We present the case of a young 24-year-old woman with an important but symmetrical pectus carinatum, not associated with pectus excavatum, without cardiorespiratory symptoms but with significant psychosocial implications for the patient, solved by the minimally invasive technique described by Abramson(reversed Nuss procedure) - MIRPC (Minimally invasive Repair of Pectus carinatum). The sternal malformation was associated with bilateral mammary hypoplasia, solved by bilateral breast implants 10 months later. The evolution was favorable and the aesthetic result was satisfactory for the patient.
