Currarino-Silverman syndrome (combined thorax deformity (CTD)) is a rare form of TD. Quite often this type of the deformity is combined with the failure of heart development (coarctation of aorta, prolapse, mitral stenosis). We mark out 2 types of CTD that enables to determine the tactics of surgical treatment. From the point of view of surgical correction potentialities the 2type of the deformity with protrusion of the manubriosternal junction but without sternum retraction is most perspective. Surgical results are presented for 3 patients, in one of them the pathology was combined with Poland syndrome.
