Abstract

Pectus excavatum, or “funnel chest,” is the most common congenital malformation of the thorax. In the literature, the sex ratio is mostly 5 men to 1 woman; in our 25-year experience of 600 cases, it was 3 men to 2 women owing to the quality of our plastic surgeon and the specific recruitment of breast anomalies due partly or totally to pectus excavatum.
