Complete Sternal Cleft Repair
This video highlights the general approach to both complete and partial sternal cleft repair in two pediatric patients. The preoperative presentation was dramatic as both patients presented for surgery later in life (at three and seven years old) due to poor socioeconomic status and difficulty accessing specialty cardiac care. Both patients had stable repairs and good outcomes at one year postoperative.
