Pectoralis Major Muscle Flap in the Treatment of Post CABG Sternal Defects

Pectoralis Major Muscle Flap in the Treatment of Post CABG Sternal Defects

The incidence of infected sternotomy wounds after median sternotomy for cardiovascular surgery is about (0.5% to 5%) and it is associated with significant morbidity and a long period of treatment. Today, muscle flaps, such as the Pectoralis major, are widely accepted as a mainstay of reconstructive options. A wide variety of modifications of the Pectoralis muscle flap for coverage of sternal defects are available depending upon the location of defect use of internal mammary artery. We would like to share our experience with Pectoralis major muscle flaps to cover the sternal defects.
