Median sternotomy

Median sternotomy

A median sternotomy is a surgical procedure performed via a large incision in the breastbone. It is mostly used for cardiac surgery, although it is also a useful incision for a number of other operations because it allows access to the area around the lungs, including treating thymoma.
