  • Multicenter Trial of Magnetic Mini-Mover for Pectus Excavatum

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study is a Phase 3, multicenter, non-randomized study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the next-generation outpatient Magnetic Mini-Mover Procedure (3MP) in 15 patients aged 8-14 years for the correction of pectus excavatum ('sunken chest'). 3MP for pectus excavatum uses a magnetically coupled implant to pull the sternum forward and gradually remodel the deformed costal cartilage. The Funding Source for this trial is the FDA Office of Orphan Products Development (Grant #R01 FD003341).
