Paper Title:
Development and Properties of a New Correction Instrument of Pectus Excavatum
  Abstract

A new correction instrument of pectus excavatum is introduced which is designed for a minimally invasive technique (Nuss procedure). The instrument was made of pure titanium plates, and finished by machining, surface treatment and so on. The instrument was made up of correcting bar and fixing bar. The mechanical properties of the instrument was measured with electron universal material testing machine, the safety and validity was verified by clinical doctors after being implanted into the patient. Results showed that the mechanical properties of the instrument keep constantly after implantation for two years. It is lighter than the like product, and can lighten the patent’s and the doctor’s operation bearing. It had been applied in national hospitals, and results showed that it was of better biocompatibility, and few complications were found. Clinical treatment effects were satisfactory.
