BACKGROUND When performing pectus excavatum repair using a pectus bar, stabilization of the bar is crucial. However, since 2007, we have been developing new devices to achieve a bar dislocation rate of zero. The purpose of this study is to determine whether our next-generation approach makes it possible to achieve our goal. METHODS We analyzed the results of various bar fixation techniques in a patient cohort of 1,816 consecutive pectus excavatum repairs using a pectus bar between 1999 and… CONTINUE READING
