Abstract

Summary Funnel chest is a congenital deformity with familial tendencies which is characterized by a funnel-shaped deformity of the anterior chest wall. It has serious physical, physiologic, and psychologic effects. The treatment is surgical, the results are uniformly good, and almost complete correction can be obtained if the operation is performed before the age of 5 years.
