Disease relevance of Funnel Chest


High impact information on Funnel Chest

  • The penetration of ticarcillin and clavulanate into cartilage was investigated in 20 subjects undergoing funnel chest correction [3].
  • 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 index, 3.95 +/- 0.88) and 20 control boys (mean +/- SD age, 12.5 +/- 0.4 years; age range, 12.1-13.5 years) without musculoskeletal deformity [4].
  • We performed concomitant repair of pectus excavatum and an atrial septal defect through a short midline incision in an adult [5].
  • METHODS: We performed EBCT in 66 patients with echocardiographically proven MVP and no clinical pectus excavatum (group A; 80% were women; mean age, 48 +/- 12 years) and in 96 control patients without MVP by echocardiography (group B; 72% were women; mean age, 49 +/- 10 years) [6].
  • Titanium miniplates for the surgical correction of pectus excavatum [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of Funnel Chest


Anatomical context of Funnel Chest

  • We conclude that young patients with IPE represent an isolated form of connective tissue abnormality because of the presence of pectus excavatum and MVP, but this is different from the systemic involvement of MS because of the lack of other systemic findings, including aortic root dilatation and changes in body habitus [13].

Gene context of Funnel Chest


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Funnel Chest

  • Pulmonary scintigraphy, including Xe-133 ventilation combined with Tc-99m MAA perfusion scans, was performed in 23 children (3 girls, 20 boys, ages: 2-9 years) with pectus excavatum, and the indices from lateral chest radiography were used for comparison [19].
