Pectus Deformities

Pectus Carinatum vs Pectus ExcavatumThere are two common deformities of the anterior chest wall: 

  • Pectus excavatum, also known as 'funnel' or 'sunken' chest is where the breast bone is pushed abnormally inward and the chest appears caved-in or sunken. Funnel Chest affects approximately one in 300 people. There is a 3:1 male to female ratio. 
  • Pectus Carinatum, also known as 'pigeon' chest is where the breastbone is pushed outward.  Pigeon chest affects around one in 1,000 people.

LOC has pioneered a method of non-surgical treatment for Pectus chest deformity in the UK.
