Revision of prior failed/recurrent pectus excavatum surgery

Dawn E. Jaroszewski, Kevin J. Johnson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recurrence of pectus excavatum deformities occurs after both open and MIRPE. Recurrence risks are also based on multiple factors and differ based on the initial repair procedure. Identifying the contributing factors to a previous procedure’s failure is critical to proper repair and prevention of another recurrence. Each case must be taken on an individual basis and is contingent on the patient’s anatomy and previous repair technique. A combination of surgical techniques may be necessary in to successful repair some patients.
