Abstract

in English, French

The contribution of computing in the management of patients with pectus excavatum has greatly improved the aesthetic result of the reconstruction endoprosthesis. Computer aided design (CAD) enables the design of implants perfectly suited to the deformation of the patient and avoids approximations of the traditional technique of plaster mold. Although this technique is applicable in many areas, this article will only deal with pectus excavatum.
