Both disorders involve individuals being born with one side of the body being more concave than the other. Some cases are mild while others, extreme. Extreme Poland Syndrome cases in individuals can also include webbing of the fingers and toes. Misalignment in either disorder that is extreme can cause spinal problems, headaches, breathing issues, and even misplacement of the heart.
Poland syndrome is considered a birth defect, as is Pectus Excavatum. Poland Syndrome in extreme cases is noticeable at birth as part of the pectoralis muscle is missing giving a concave look to the chest on one side. Pectus Excavatum may not be noticeable at birth as it develops over time and involves the underdevelopment of connective tissue.
In mild cases of these disorders, fat injections can round out the misaligned side of the chest wall. This is especially true for women as breast size may be variable from one side to the other. Also in females, implants in mild cases may correct abnormalities in dimensions on the concave side of the chest.
In males, fat injections do not work well as there is no breast tissue in which to inject fat and correct mild abnormalities. Mild abnormalities are more of a psycho-social dilemma leading to self-consciousness than severe cases.
Severe cases of both disorders do require reconstructive surgery by a centre that specializes in Poland Syndrome and Pectus Excavatum. The Antiaging Group Barcelona in Spain is world-renowned for its reconstructive surgery techniques to correct Poland Syndrome and Pectus Excavatum.
