Saddle chest is a special thoracic deformity named by us. The main feature of this deformity is that there are symmetrical depressions in the lower part of the chest wall on both sides. The depressions on both sides are not connected, and the middle is separated by relative protrusions, whose height is the same as that of the normal chest wall. Because it looks like a saddle, we named it saddle chest. Although saddle chest has depression, it is not suitable for Nuss procedure. The more reasonable choices are Wung procedure and Wenlin procedure, which can generally achieve satisfactory results.
