​This book discusses predominantly pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum, its variation and the treatment modalities available, including minimally invasive surgery. This will help to increase awareness of the available treatment options to doctors and healthcare workers but will also help trainee cardiac and thoracic surgeons. It is also an essential reference book for those already practicing.

​Chest wall deformities are a common occurrence, the commonest being pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum. The treatment for these is provided by very few centers and there is a decline in expertise especially in the UK due to rationing. When patients approach their GP they are mostly turned away and asked to live with it due to a lack of awareness and treatment modalities.  

The Editors have extensive experience in this field and will invite authors from other specialties, i.e. chest physicians, cardiologist, pediatric surgeons, anesthesiologists, pain management team, plastic surgeons and prosthetic departments, to contribute their views and solutions to the book.
