Characteristic feature of pectus excavatum (PE) is tendency to progression, which is closely linked with a growth and age of children. Further development of PE leads to the more severe disorders of lungs, to the displacement and rotation of a heart, as a result – to the decompensation of cardiovascular and respiratory systems [3, 2]. It is well – known surgical treatment of PE, because conservative treatment is not effective. It was offered more than 80 different variants of surgical procedures and their modifications for PE correction, but there is a high percentage of unsatisfactory results – to 41.7 % [1, 4], which indicated about a relevant and unresolved problem in general, and to the necessity of further research in this field. Our research aimed to analyze results of the surgical treatment of PE at the children with using minimally invasive method of thoracoplasty. Our observation and treatment covered 50 children with PE, aged from 4 to 17 years.
