The Vacuum Bell

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

An relatively new alternative to surgery is the vacuum bell, originally invented by Klobe, a german engineer who suffered from pectus excavatum himself and reportedly cured it with his device. It consists of a bowl shaped device which fits over the depression; the air is then removed by the use of a hand pump. The vacuum created by this lifts the sternum upwards, lessening the severity of the deformity. As it is such a recent device there is currently no information as to whether it is effective in the long term.
All I can say is...thank you Mr. Klobe, you are a genius!
