MIRPC (Minimal Invasive Repair of Pectus Carinatum) – Abramson Procedure

Minimal Invasive Repair of Pectus Carinatum is a method developed for the treatment of pectus carinatum. In the operation, no way is entered into the chest cage. It is based on the principle of passing a metal bar horizontally from the right side of the patient to the left side of the patient, under the skin and muscle, but passing over the most protruding point of the sternum bone, and fixing it to the sides of the ribs with the help of wire by pressing. Thus, with the pressure of the bar, the sternum bone is precipitated where it should be.


Since we can provide the same pressure with orthosis without surgery until the age of 17, we usually do not perform these surgeries. There is no upper age limit.


2-4 years after the operation, with a much simpler operation, the bars are removed by entering the previous incisions and the patient is discharged on the same day.
