Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been used for the treatment of deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) with promising results. However, questions have been raised regarding the potential risk of right ventricle (RV) rupture during treatment. In the present study, we evaluate our clinical experience of NPWT focusing on RV rupture and major bleeding complications and its potentially negative impact on 30-day mortality during an 11-year period. Serious bleeding complications during NPWT… CONTINUE READING
