Introduction


Welcome to our information site on pectus anomalies

This site has been designed primarily to provide those with a pectus anomaly with information; to understand what a pectus anomaly is, how and why it may affect you and how and where to get further advice.

This site describes some of the treatment options for correcting a pectus anomaly. Information on treatment options will only be discussed where reliable levels of evidence to support the use of such techniques can be found.

This site provides a forum where you can either contribute your own experiences with pectus anomaly or you can read about the experiences of others.

This site also provides links to many UK specialist hospitals treating patients with pectus anomalies, to provide and share the most up to date, accurate information with doctors and nurses.
