Abstract

An increasing number of aortic valve replacements are performed through a ministernotomy. Due to the small incision and partial fixation of the caudal sternum, the traditional wire closure can be complicated and even harmful to the surrounding tissue. In such cases, we recommend the use of nitinol clips for sternal closure. This technique, which we have used in 48 patients, is simple, safe, and fast, and results in excellent outcomes.
