Hi, I remember seeing on discovery I think, and the internet, about a pectus repair that doesn't require surgery. I searched the internet again to find information about it, but I can't seem to obtain any now.

Does anyone know what this procedure is called? It involves wearing a brace or something similar around the chest. I think someone in brazil or around there invented it.

Well, if anyone knows the name, or better yet - has a link to information, please let me know.

Thanks
