Successful Surgery of Chest with «NUSS» Device for the First Time in Iran by the Medical Team of Zanjireh Omid Charity Institute
This surgery was done for the first time by «Donald Nuss» in 1990. In this surgery inside of the chest is scanned by Thoracoscopy camera and with a special device, the chest deformity is corrected. This disease, called «Pectus Excavatum» is caused from the abnormal growth of several ribs and sternum. It puts pressure on the heart and lungs and can cause breathing issues for the patient. The applied device for this surgery was purchased and imported to Iran for the first time by Zanjireh Omid Charity Institute and used by the Institute’s surgery team.
