Custom Silicone Chest ImplantsRestore symmetry to the chest
Anatomics can help surgeons and patients correct chest wall and soft tissue defects with the use of a permanent custom made silicone implant. The implants are derived from the patient’s own CT scan to accurately contour the implant prior to surgery. Anatomics can compensate for any overlying soft tissue changes and manufacture to the surgeon’s specific measurements and requirements.

Pectus excavatum (PE), or funnel chest, is one of the most common congenital anomalies. It is described as an anterior chest wall deformity, characterised by a depressed sternum. This anomaly occurs in 1 in every 400 to 1000 births. Men are afflicted approximately 5 times more often than women.
Poland’s Syndrome is a birth defect that presents as an underdevelopment of the hard and/or soft tissue in the chest region. It can result in an asymmetry of the bony thorax and/or the absence of the pectoralis or chest muscle on one side of the body. Poland’s syndrome has been estimated to occur in 1 to 3 per 100,000 newborns. Poland’s syndrome most often affects the right side of the body, and occurs more often in males than females.
