  • Congenital Malformation of the Ribs

    Deformities of the rib cage, such as the absence of ribs, may be clinically palpable. When the condition is bilateral, the neck appears very short and thick.[boneandspine.com] This revolutionary implant allows a surgeon to expand a child’s rib cage surgically to nurture lung growth and correct spinal deformity.[chop.edu] deformity of sternum Congenital deformity of thoracic cage Congenital fissure of sternum Congenital focal enlargement of rib Congenital fusion of ribs Congenital hypoplasia[icd9data.com]

  • Occasional Back Pain

    Neither the type of curve, the size of scoliosis, nor the rib cage deformity influences the data.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At the thoracic level, vertebral turning impacts the rib cage and may result in rib prominence on the opposite side of the curve. Deformity is the primary complaint.[ortho-spine.com] Demographic data (age, sex, follow-up time), radiographic analysis (Kings classification, Cobb angle, extension and site of fusion), and rib cage deformity were correlated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
