The analysis of the 36 patient management with pectus carinatum during the period from November 2015 till March 2017 is presented in the article. The dynamic compression bracing of the own design was employed in 31 patients. In all cases with completed course of treatment, we observed the full recovery. In the cases with incompleted course of deformity repair, the positive trend is determined and the patients are continuing the treatment. Several advantages of the own design of dynamic compression bracing are singled out. The similar brace for correcting the accompaned protrusion of ribs and costal cartilages is proposed.
Key words: pectus carinatum, nonoperative treatment, dynamic compression bracing, protrusion of ribs and costal cartilages.
