Abstract
Background: Complicated sternal wound infection after cardiac surgery has an incidence of 0.4-6.9% and mortality of 7-80%. The ideal reconstructive procedure is still a matter of debate. Aim: To report our experience with the laparoscopically harvested omental flap and transverse plate fixation for sternal reconstruction after complicated sternal wound infection.
Biography
J.M. De Raet received an international medical and surgical training at the K.U.Leuven (Belgium) in cardiac surgery, at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium) in general surgery, at the University of Maastricht (Netherlands) in microsurgery, at San Raffaele University Hospital of Milan (Italy) and St. Antonius Hospital Nieuwegein (Netherlands). He is a member of national and international scientific organisations, reviewer of several cardiac surgery journals, and faculty member of the international scientific advisory board regarding postoperative bone/wound complications. Currently, he is also a Europe-wide instructor for anastomotic skills simulation training with emphasis on off-pump CABG. At present, he is an evaluating member in a project on distant technical learning regarding anastomotic techniques. His main interests are off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (OPCAB) with complete arterial revascularization and no touch-aorta, sternal wound/bone complication management, minimally invasive heart surgery and surgical education (training & simulation).
