In 1987, Donald Nuss performed the first minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE).

The aim of the study was to summarize the 25 years of performing this technique and analyze its modifications.

The study was prepared using methods commonly used in historical research: descriptive, comparative, inductive and deductive methods.

The history of the earliest Nuss operations and updated Nuss procedure was described. The most important modifications of the Nuss procedure were summarized: Miller, Hebra, Schaarschmidt, Hendrickson and Al-Assiri modifications. Polish input to Nuss procedure surgery was described as well.
