Deformities of the anterior thoracic wall

  • Chapter

Abstract

The individual shape of the thoracic cage in both men and women has considerable impact regarding phenotype and expression of human beings of different races. It is thus not surprising that the thorax finds inherent and manifold mention in linguistic usage of all peoples (e.g., “chest out!”; “up to one’s chest”; and so forth). It follows that any noteworthy deviation from a considered norm may lead to mental trauma and/or psychic problems. Although obviously not the major problem, functional impairment may occur, not least justifying for sketching the basic Functional anatomy (Sections 2.1.2 and 2.1.3).
