Extractions: UNC-CH School of Medicine CHAPEL HILL In a medical first for North Carolina, pediatric surgeons at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have corrected a common chest-wall deformity called "funnel chest" by using a simpler, new operation. An 18-year-old male patient at UNC Hospitals has undergone improved treatment for pectus excavatum, a condition that occurs roughly once in every 2,000 U.S. births. Pectus excavatum displaces the sternum, or breastbone, rearward and leaves a deep groove in the chest, making it appear caved in. Stooped shoulders and poor posture exaggerate the effect, which carries both a physiological and a psychological burden, says Dr. Don K. Nakayama, professor and chief of pediatric surgery at the UNC-CH School of Medicine "The physiologic effect is that the chest doesnt expand normally," he said. "While the children are able to breathe and measure normal in pulmonary function studies, most complain of easy fatigability and shortness of breath. In gym class, these may be the kids toward the back when theyre running around the track. And during summer, theyre the kids with T-shirts on when they go swimming." Nakayama said children commonly become self-conscious about the appearance of their chest.

What is the name for this condition and can I have some information about it? Answer The medical term for this is pectus excavatum and the lay term is funnel chest. This is usually an isolated abnormality of the skeleton, but can be associated with certain connective tissue diseases such as Marfan's syndrome . Rarely, it is associated with rickets. There is an occasional link between poor exercise tolerance and funnel chest, but this is usually because people with this condition are led to believe that they shouldn't exercise. In many people with the condition, the heart is shifted to the left, and there may be some problems with the functioning of the heart.

Description While the child is deep asleep and pain-free (using general anesthesia), an incision is made over the breastbone (sternum). The deformed cartilages are removed and the rib lining is left in place to allow regrowth of the cartilages. An incision is made in the sternum and it is repositioned. A rib or metal strut may be used to stabilize the sternum in normal position until healing occurs in 3 to 6 months. A temporary chest tube may be placed to reexpand the lung if the lining of the lung is entered.

Wickert August 1999 T he moment Alex was born, over nine years ago, Teri Edmunds and her husband, Doug, could tell something was wrong. Although the second of their three children weighed nearly 11 pounds, Alexs chest was dramatically sunken, the result of a rare congenital hereditary deformity known as pectus excavatum, or "funnel chest." Doctors assured the new parents that Alex was healthy, but that the inward-facing sternum might eventually apply pressure to the newborns chest organs as the child grew, causing shortness of breath and a restricted growth of the heart and lungs. "I was so scared," Teri recalled. "His little chest totally collapsed with every breath."
