Despite long-term survival benefits, the increased risk of sternal complications limits the use of bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafts for myocardial revascularization. The aim of the present study was both to analyse the risk factors for deep sternal wound infection (DSWI), which complicates routine BITA grafting and to create a DSWI risk score based on the results of this analysis.

Abstract

Despite long-term survival benefits, the increased risk of sternal complications limits the use of bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafts for myocardial revascularization. The aim of the present study was both to analyse the risk factors for deep sternal wound infection (DSWI), which complicates routine BITA grafting and to create a DSWI risk score based on the results of this analysis.
