SternaLock Blu Versus Wires
The SternaLock Blu Study was designed by a team of expert cardiothoracic surgeons and leading health economic researchers, and compared outcomes following sternal closure with SternaLock Blu or wire cerclage.
A total of 236 patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery were enrolled at 12 hospitals in the United States. Patients were followed for six months to evaluate
healing, clinical outcomes and costs.
Patients treated with SternaLock Blu had improved sternal healing, fewer sternal complications and improved recovery. And, all of these clinical benefits were achieved at a cost savings.
The method matters. SternaLock Blu proves it.
