Abstract

High-risk sternotomy incisions represent a challenge at the time of wound closure. We present an alternate wound closure technique that can be used in high-risk sternotomy incisions and consists of a combination of space-obliterating sutures and negative pressure (suction using wound VAC) therapy. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12388 (J Card Surg 2015;30:346-350)
