Clinical Trial Summary

Sternal Wound Infection (SWI) in open heart surgery is one of the most annoying and avoidable complications that one encounters during work. Investigators investigate the rates of sternal wound infection (SWI) in patients in whom were used locking compression plates (LCP) versus in patients in whom were used wires to fixate the sternum for variable causes. SWI increases the overall cost and burden in the medical service and increases the patients suffering and disability. investigators aim to provide our patients with the most suitable means for sternal fixation.
