2.2. Minimally Invasive Sternal Depression Procedure+Nuss Procedure

The surgical procedure was implemented to treat pectus carinatum comorbid with obvious Harrison groove depression. Upon completion of the routine minimally invasive sternal depression procedure, the sternum was depressed to a normal position. However, the depression of the Harrison groove was severe on either side of the chest. The minimally invasive Nuss procedure was performed at the lowest point of depression until a satisfactory orthotic effect was reached (Figures (Figures44 and and55).
