Is there a “heart” position that is abnormal? I have pectus excavatum.

Pectus excavatum is a chest abnormality which results in a depression in the chest wall. Sometimes it is so deep that it compresses part of the heart. Usually it causes no problems and is followed by a physician. One note is that it can be associated with arrhythmias such as supra ventricular tachycardias.
