  • Feasibility of primary sternal plating for morbidly obese patients after cardiac surgery. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Single xiphoid transverse plate reinforcement for primary sternal closure is a feasible option for morbidly obese patients, who are otherwise at high risk of developing sternal dehiscence. Using this technique may decrease postoperative narcotics usage. Morbidly obese patients (body mass index ≥35 kg/m2) have a higher-than-normal risk of sternal dehiscence after cardiac surgery. In a pilot study, we found that those who underwent transverse sternal plating (n = 8) had no sternal dehiscence and required less postoperative analgesia than patients who underwent standard wire closure (n = 14).
