We describe a technique of correction of a severe pouter pigeon breast. Three osteotomies were performed on the sternum, one resecting the curved fused angle of Louis. Multiples chondrotomies allowed to flatten the cartilage part. The reconstruction was firmly hardened with a STRATOS titanium device. The cosmetic result was satisfactory.
