From the Division of Thoracic, Cardiac and Vascular Surgery Tübingen University Hospital, Tübingen, Germany
Delayed sternal closure is an established method to overcome circulatory instability, especially in pediatric cardiac surgery. We describe the management of complications in a seven-year-old boy in whom staged chest closure augmented by sternal stenting was used twice within three weeks, once for right heart and once for left heart failure.
