Anterior chest wall deformities in children are the expression of some congenital malformation such as Poland's syndrome and pectus excavatum. The surgical treatment of these malformations affecting children is aimed at correcting large wall defects and stabilizing the chest wall, assuring at the same time chest harmonious growth and postoperative functional assessment. We present the results of the treatment of 2 cases of Poland's syndrome, 20 cases of pectus excavatum and 2 cases of pectus carinatum, with a follow-up of 6 months--9 years.
