Every year, over one million people worldwide undergo open-heart surgery in the fight against cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association reports that each year in the United States, over 700,000 open-heart surgeries are performed requiring mid-line sternotomies.
The SternaLock Blu System applies the proven principles of locking rigid fixation to sternal closure and offers a rigid fixation alternative for mid-line sternotomies as well as a variety of minimally-invasive approaches including the mini-sternotomy and mini-thoracotomy.
The SternaLock Blu plates thinner and anatomical design help address the challenges associated with fixating a 90° sternal incision or rib osteotomy
The plates increase stability at the osteotomy site, while still allowing for minimally invasive access
Intended for use in the stabilisation and fixation of fractures of the anterior chest wall, including sternal fixation following sternotomy and sternal reconstructive surgical procedures, to promote fusion.
Instrumentation has been designed specifically for use with this system of implants.
