The Nuss Procedure

Filmed at the 2017 STS Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas, Joel Dunning of the James Cook University Hospital in London, UK, moderates a discussion on the Nuss procedure. Mr Dunning is joined by Dawn Jaroszewski of Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, and Daniel Miller of WellStar Health Systems in Marietta, Georgia. They discuss the benefits that the Nuss procedure provides for patients and the criteria that they use to select patients as candidates for surgery. The panelists consider both the cosmetic and impairment aspects of pectus excavatum, and the best approaches for a stable surgical repair.
