EARLY AWARENESS OF RIB CAGE DEFORMITIES INCREASES TREATMENT SUCCESS

Turkey Medicals member and JCI Antalya hospital head of department Professor Doctor, tells that chest decapitations occur due to excessive development of cartilage located between the ribs and the board of faith, stating that “Patients may have shortness of breath, palpitations and chest pain. Failure to treat rib cage deformities affects a person’s psychology and social life. There are two main types of disfigurement, called shoemaker’s chest (inward depression) and pigeon’s chest (outward protrusion),” he said.

Thoracic Surgery Specialist Professor Doctor, he made statements about the deformities that can occur in the rib cage. Decapitation of the rib cage occurs due to excessive development of cartilage located between the ribs and the iman board, stating that “There is discomfort from the shape of the rib cage. Rarely there may be shortness of breath, palpitations and chest pain. Failure to treat rib cage deformities affects a person’s psychology and social life. There are two main types of disfigurement called shoemaker’s chest (inward depression) and pigeon’s chest (outward protrusion),” he said.

Referring to the internal depression that occurs in the chest, Prof. Dr. said, “It is a deformity caused by the fact that the board of faith is collapsed inward. it occurs once in 300 live births. It is 4-6 times more common in men, and the incidence is high in others if there is one of its individuals in the family. It begins in childhood and becomes apparent as age progresses.

It can be accompanied by spinal curvatures, humpbacks or other bone, muscle abnormalities. The sooner it is noticed, the higher the success of treatment,” he said.

Prof. Dr. said that people with a problem with a shoemaker’s chest do not feel well socially, “They do not want to go to the sea and play sports in the summer. The fact that the board of faith is collapsed inside compresses the heart and lungs in 1-2 percent of patients. The rest of the patients have complaints caused by the shape problem. Although surgery can be performed at any age, the ideal age for surgery is usually between the ages of 13 and 16. Treatment is also possible with non-surgical methods in early stage patients (Vacuum method). “Ravitch Surgery,” which used to be performed on these people with a large incision from the front of the chest, has lost its popularity today due to problems such as a serious scar on the front of the chest, lasting for a long time, bleeding,” he said.

Prof. Dr. “In recent years, the “Nuss Method”, which is made so that there are no scars on both sides of the chest, is preferred. The operation takes about 40 minutes, and patients can be discharged after 4 days of hospitalization. The pigeon’s chest (outward protrusion) is formed due to the fact that the cartilage located between the ribs and the faith it pushes the faith board bone outward. Pigeon breast is seen once in a thousand births, it is 4 times more common in men, and disfigurement becomes more pronounced in adolescence. 25 percent of patients have a family history, the most common accompanying disorder of the disease is scoliosis. If these types of operations are performed as much as possible without hardening the rib cage, the success rate increases even more. In patients diagnosed at an early stage, non-surgical methods (orthosis) can also be used to obtain laughable results in the period when the rib cage is flexible.

Some patients are corrected by surgery using the Abrahamson Method, which is a closed method. The operation takes about 40 minutes. Rarely, open and closed methods can be applied together. Although surgery is performed at all ages, the ideal age is the range of 14-17″.
