Abstract

Redo sternotomy is a challenging surgical procedure performed with increasing frequency; catastrophic hemorrhage is a rare but highly lethal complication. We report our experience in treating this complication in 3 cases of 307 reoperations and propose a simple method to control catastrophic hemorrhage during sternal reentry.
