Ask the Experts - Pectus Excavatum (Sunken Chest) and Carinatum (Pigeon Chest)

with John W. DiFiore, MD, FACS, FAAP and Anthony L. DeRoss, MD, FACS, FAAP

Description:

Pectus excavatum is an abnormal development of the rib cage where the breastbone grows inward, resulting in a sunken chest wall. Commonly known as “sunken chest” or “funnel chest.”

In contrast, pectus carinatum is a condition in which the breastbone protrudes more than usual. The condition is sometimes called “pigeon chest.”

Join Dr. John DiFiore and Dr. Anthony DeRoss for answers to your questions on pectus excavatum and carinatum including minimally invasive and non-invasive treatment options.
