英文摘要: Background(#br)Median sternotomy may be associated with postoperative complications such as nonunion after conventional metal wire closure. The Sternal Talon device (KLS Martin, Jacksonville, FL) has recently been introduced as an alternative for osteosynthesis after median sternotomy and may also be beneficial for patients with persistent sternal nonunion.(#br)Methods(#br)A consecutive series of 24 patients underwent Sternal Talon repair for sternal nonunion or acute mediastinitis, or both, after sternal wire closure.
