Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The presence of pectus excavatum in patients undergoing open heart surgery is rare, and no consensus has been reached regarding the surgical approach. Thus, this paper describes a single-stage procedure for correction of pectus excavatum with the modified Nuss procedure ad modum Pilegaard in 4 patients undergoing open heart surgery. Three of 4 patients successfully underwent the single-stage procedure. At follow-up after bar removal, all patients had no complications related to the Nuss bar, and all had excellent cosmetic results.
