Background : We used an Abramson technique for minimally invasive repair of pectus carinatum in patients who preferred surgery to brace therapy, had been unsuccessfully treated via brace therapy, or were unsuitable for brace therapy because of a rigid chest wall. Methods : Between July 2011 and May 2015, 16 patients with pectus carinatum underwent minimally invasive surgery. Results : The mean age of the patients was 24.35±13.20 years (range, 14?57 years), and all patients were male. The percentage of excellent aesthetic results, as rated by the patients, was 37.5%, and the percentage of good results was 56.25%. The preoperative and postoperative Haller Index values were 2.01±0.19 (range, 1.60?2.31), and 2.22±0.19 (range, 1.87?2.50), respectively (p-value=0.01), and the median hospital stay was 7.09±2.91 days (range, 5?15 days). Only one patient experienced postoperative complications. Conclusion : Minimally invasive repair is effective for the treatment of pectus carinatum, even in adult patients.
