Pectus excavatum is a condition in which a person's breastbone is sunken into the chest. While the sunken breastbone is often noticeable shortly after birth, the severity of pectus excavatum typically worsens during adolescence and can lead to heart and breathing problems. Dawn E. Jaroszewski, M.D., a cardiothoracic surgeon, at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, demonstrates pectus repair surgery -- before, during and after.
