Abstract

Reports documenting the cardiopulmonary significance of pectus excavatum are limited, and there remains a lack of consensus as to whether surgical repair can improve function. We present a case of pectus excavatum deformity and heart failure. Surgical repair was performed with significant improvement of performance and heart function.
