Abstract: The treatment of pectus carinatum has a history of many years, and the early operations were mainly open operations. In recent years, minimally invasive surgery has gradually become the mainstream technology for the treatment of pectus carinatum. The first minimally invasive surgery used was Abramson procedure. This kind of operation has certain effect, but its defect is obvious. To eliminate the defects of this procedure, we designed Wenlin procedure. Compared with Abramson procedure, this procedure has obvious advantages. However, for severe pectus carinatums, Wenlin procedure alone cannot achieve satisfactory results. For this reason, we added Wung procedure during the operation. This combined operation method can obtain the effect of template plastic surgery, so it is a very ideal surgical method. This paper introduces the use of Wenlin procedure and Wung procedure in a patient with severe pectus carinatum.
