Recurrent chest wall anomalies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Chest wall anomalies are a heterogeneous group of malformations requiring repair. Recurrence and the need for secondary repair may occur. Congenital anomalies, including bifid sternum, pentalogy of Cantrell, Jeunes's syndrome and Poland's anomaly, rarely recur. Pectus carinatum may recur in the original surgical area or an adjacent area and most often recurs in patients who undergo repair before completion of teenage growth. Pectus excavatum may recur in approximately 5% of patients. Simple recurrence, floating sternum, or Acquired Jeune's syndrome may result. All of these would require reoperation. Each chest wall anomaly recurrence requires an individualized approach to timing and type of repair. Overall excellent results should be obtained for operative repair of recurrences.
