Pectus Up

INNOVATIVE SURGICAL METHOD THAT OFFERS A VERY LITTLE INVASIVE SOLUTION TO THE TREATMENT OF PECTUS EXCAVATUM

WHAT IS PECTUS EXCAVATUM?

Pectus Excavatum is:

  • A congenital deformity of the rib cage characterized by the thorax taking on a concave shape, like a «funnel».
  • The sternum is inverted inwards, which generates pressure on the vital organs of the thorax, thus restricting their growth capacity and causing shortness of breath and respiratory difficulties.
  • It occurs in 1 in every 1000 children and it is the most common congenital anomaly of the chest wall (90%).
  • The disease appears mildly at birth and worsens during childhood and adolescence.
  • There are other surgical methods to correct the Pectus Excavatum:
    • The Ravitch procedure
    • The Nuss procedure

the solution: Pectus Up

Out of the collaboration between Ventura Medical Technologies and the Corporació Sanitària Parc Taulí, a new product is born: the Pectus Up Surgery Kit, aimed at performing a new less invasive technique for Pectus Excavatum patients.

The Pectus Up is a set of implants and tools manufactured with the aim of treating this disease by means of a new extrathoracic surgical method that substantially reduces the risk of the intervention, post-surgical pain and recovery time.

SURGEONS TESTIMONIES

It is a perfectly reproducible technique although the basic concepts of it must be known for a correct execution. With the updated version it has been significantly improved and simplified.

The technique is safe, just following the sequence of steps is required until its execution. Once the desired elevation and the fixing between plates have been reached, the feeling of firmness of the system is very good.

It is also an easy and reproducible, minimally invasive surgical technique when our main is sternal elevation for the modification of the thoracic structure.

Dr. Jorge Hernández, Hospital Sagrat Cor - Barcelona

I believe that with the adequate/right knowledge of chest wall surgery, together with some notions of biomechanics, Pectus Up is an easily reproducible technique.

Initially, there might be uncertainty about the traction capacity of the system, but as experience progresses and with the latest evolution of the Pectus Up, it proves to be a safe and effective option in selected cases.

This technique presents an important advantage. It modifies the chest wall without invading the pleural space, which facilitates a faster recovery and less hospitalisation in comparison with other techniques.

why Pectus Up?

The Pectus Up represents a technological revolution in the field of thoracic surgery for the treatment of Pectus Excavatum, because it is a minimally invasive method and thanks to the noticeable reduction in the patient recovery time.

Pectus Up technique

Benefits over other techniques:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Subpectoral device
  • Small incisions. Minimal blood loss
  • Very short recovery time
  • No risk of affecting the internal organs
  • Short duration surgery
  • Does not require intensive care
  • Allows for CPR

SURGICAL procedure

  • Minimal incision for implant placement
  • Insertion of a plate (small size) in the middle area of the sternum
  • Fixation of a ball joint screw in the sternum through the central area of the plate
  • Placement of the implant around the ball joint screw
  • Placement of the traction system on the ball joint screw to raise the sternum to the correct position
  • Removal of the ball joint screw and the traction system
  • Incision closure

technical data

The Pectus Up Surgery Kit consists of a plate with a functional design, several bone fixations and a set of tools that allow the performance of the surgery.

Current regulations regarding materials and treatments have been taken into account in all the elements of the Pectus Up Surgery Kit so that the implant is totally bioinert in the human body. In addition, all the necessary studies have been conducted for the product to fulfill its function.
