Advanced Pectus Course
October 15 & 16, 2015
The Advanced Pectus Course is designed for surgeons who are currently performing the Nuss Procedure in their practice, but want to improve their results. Since its description by Dr. Nuss 15 years ago, the technique has changed markedly. Improved techniques for decreased bar rotation, elimination of intercostal stripping, and safer passage of the bars under the sternum have been developed. The course will also cover modifications for adult pectus patients, techniques for recurrent or failed prior surgery, and modifications for mixed defects.
