  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the traditional surgical techniques for treating PE, encompassing skeletal resections (costal cartilages with or without sternal osteotomies) with or without retrosternal support compared with minimally invasive surgery (the placement of a retrosternal bar without skeletal resection).
