Personal-Impact of Pectus (PIP) Study

Participants: Pediatric surgery patients (10-22 y/o) diagnosed with PE & their parent or guardian

Data Collection Style: Survey

The PIP Study Team’s objective is to measure health-related quality of life of patients with pectus excavatum and to understand the social and economic characteristics of this population. The PIP study assesses the emotional and behavioral adjustment of children with PE. Patients, as well as parents, will be asked to complete the survey at multiple time points throughout the patient’s treatment – spanning from before and after the surgical or orthotic interventions. The survey can be completed via paper, computer, tablet, or phone while visiting the clinic.
