OBJECTIVE To determine the magnitude of the effects of pectus excavatum deformity on endurance fitness and cardiorespiratory functional reserve in adolescent boys. DESIGN Cross-sectional comparison of cardiac and ventilatory variables at rest and during a maximal cycle exercise test. SETTING Pediatric exercise-testing laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Twelve boys (mean +/- SD age, 14.1 +/- 1.8 years; age range, 11.8-18.0 years) with moderate-to-severe pectus excavatum deformity (mean +/- SD Haller… CONTINUE READING
