Pectus excavatum (PE) occurs less commonly in women, and the implications on a pregnancy after repair during the period when support bars are in place are unknown. We present 2 cases: 1 with a successful twin gestation and another with a successful singleton gestation. These women carried the pregnancies to term and delivered their infants with the Nuss bars in place.
