Özet

Background Nuss procedure has become the procedure of choice for well-selected patients with pectus excavatum. Perioperative complications may pose difficulty during the subsequent bar removal due to adhesions and tissue plane disruptions during the initial surgery and repair. This report describes bar removal experience in patients whose Nuss procedures were complicated by cardiac injury, pericardial breach, and lung parenchyma/diaphragm injury during the initial procedure.
