The impact of deep sternal wound infection on long-term survival after coronary artery bypass grafting


, : The impact of deep sternal wound infection on long-term survival after coronary artery bypass grafting. Chest 127(2): 464-471

Objectives: To identify the impact of deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) on long-term survival after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Background: DSWI following CABG is an infrequent, yet devastating complication with increased morbidity and mortality. However, little has been published regarding the impact of DSWI on long-term mortality. Methods: We studied 3,760 consecutive patients who underwent isolated CABG between 1992 and 2002.
