WCBL’s Pectus Carinatum Bracing Solution
Bracing may be an alternative to a surgical approach to treatment for Pectus Carinatum. The WPC Compressor, developed by Westcoast Brace & Limb, is a custom brace designed to gently apply pressure to the sternum, gradually correcting the structure of the chest wall.
We custom fabricate the brace based on a mold of the child’s chest. For best results, the brace should be worn 23 hours a day, 7 days a week. The child may remove the brace for bathing and/or swimming. The brace is typically utilized for one year.
Treatment for pectus deformities should begin when the child is at least beginning his or her pubertal growth spurt. At this time, when the chest wall is more fully developed, the risk of recurrence and complications is minimized.
