FiberTape® Sternal Closure

Paul L. DiGiorgi, MD (Fort Myers, FL), demonstrates how to use FiberTape® sternal closure, which is similar to closure with stainless steel wires, to reapproximate the sternum after median sternotomy. Dr. DiGiorgi highlights how the unique FiberTape tensioner provides controlled tension and compresses the sternal halves together in a reproducible fashion.
