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.
