Successful treatment in patient care

1st PLACE INNOVATION AWARD 2009
CITY OF VIENNA; AUSTRIA

Since we treat all patients with the Posthorax sternum vest it is a win for all - we highly recommend Posthorax to every heart center.

Prim. Univ. Doz. M. Grabenwöger,
Heart Center Vienna, Austria

Consequent application of the Posthorax vest reduced deep sternal wound complications by 63%

M.D. Ph. D Florian M. Wagner,
University Heart Center Hamburg, Germany

Bio-mechanical analysis: The findings of the study proved a positive biomechanical effect of the Posthorax support vest in the anteroposterior movement which predicates its favorable clinical effect in avoiding sternum related complications.

M.D. Ph. D. Michael Gorlitzer, Hietzing Heart Center, Vienna, Austria

We have used the vest for more than 6 months in more than 500 patients. We are very pleased with the results. Our deep sternal infection rate dropped by more than 70%.

M.D. Ph.D Hans Jonsson.
Karolinska University Hospital Stockholm

Presenting the importance of stabilizing the sternum after open heart procedures. This study confirms that stabilizing the thorax in the dorsoventral axis prevents sternum dehiscence and infections.

Hietzing Heart Center, Vienna, Austria

"The more we used the Posthorax support vest, the more reductions in sternal complications we observed"

Nicolas Nicolaidis, Dept. of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery,
Southampton General Hospital, Southampton, United Kingdom

"Super design, clinical efficiency, a product like that stops sternal infections and much prolonged hospitalization for our patients"

Dr. Markus Richter,
Dept. of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, University Clinic Jena, Germany

Correct application and stringent use of the Posthorax® vest as a single patient product provides highly significant results preventing dWHC whereas sWHC showed no significant improvement Hence post operative anterior posterior stabilization in the dorsal ventral axis as demonstrated by the Posthorax® vest seems to be the single most important factor preventing deep sternal wound infections and mediastinitis.
