Summary of "Long-Term Results of Compressive Brace Therapy for Pectus Carinatum."

 Pectus carinatum (PC) is one of the most common types of congenital chest wall deformity. Recently, noninvasive compressive brace therapy has been more frequently used than invasive surgical correction to treat PC. Hence, the purpose of this study was to determine the long-term outcome of compressive brace therapy.
