Abstract :

Objective. This paper is to understand the effect of simultaneous correction of pectus excavatum with scoliosis and to provide some useful information for clinical orthopedic surgery design. Methods. The method of a three-dimensional reconstruction has been used to the reconstruction of the chest model of pectus excavatum with scoliosis, and the numerical stimulation has been conducted to the process of minimally invasive correction. Three kinds of correction methods have been considered in the numerical simulation, stretch spine, stretch spine and minimally invasive correction at the same time, and release stretch spine after stretch spine and minimally invasive correction of pectus excavatum at the same time. Results. It is found that stretch spine may help to correction of scoliosis but aggravate the sternum collapse, and release stretch spine after stretch spine and minimally invasive correction at the same time could not only be good at scoliosis but also improve the collapse of the sternum, which could help to improve the heartbeat and breath of the patients. Conclusion. Among the three kinds of correction methods, release stretch spine after stretch spine and minimally invasive correction at the same time could help to improve both the scoliosis and the collapse of the sternum.
