Breast augmentation does not increase risk of complications with pectus excavatum repair

In a retrospective review, researchers determined that cosmetic breast surgery can be performed concurrently with pectus excavatum repair without an increased risk for complications. 

The researchers reviewed data for 47 who underwent pectus excavatum repair at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona from January 2010 to September 2013. Patients’ median age was 35 years, and mean pectus severity was 6.2. All patients included in the study reported physiologic symptoms, which included dyspnea, pain, tachycardia/palpitations and exercise intolerance, as the primary reason for seeking repair.
