Sternum Revision Surgery with Titanium Implant
A 60-year-old man underwent coronary bypass surgery in 2009. Unfortunately, following the coronary bypass surgery the patient had four unsuccessful sternum revision surgeries in different centers due to postoperative sternal dehiscence. The patient presented to the authors’ cardiovascular surgery department with the complaint of dyspnea. The patient underwent a sternal revision operation with a specific sternocostal titanium implant that was designed digitally and manufactured in 2013 at the Medical Design and Manufacturing Center at the authors’ institution.
