Background This procedure demonstrates how to perform a median sternotomy and cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). A median sternotomy procedure provides access to the heart, lungs, and thoracic region. During a median sternotomy, an incision is made along the sternum vertically and the sternum is divided. A median sternotomy is often used for surgical procedures such as a heart transplant, coronary artery bypass surgery, or other corrective surgery for congenital heart defects. Often times after a median sternotomy, many procedures require an incision into the pericardium, and would then be considered an open-heart surgery. It is often necessary to use a heart-lung machine, also known as cardiopulmonary bypass. Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is a surgical technique that places the function of the heart and lungs on a machine temporarily during the surgical procedure. The CPB machine, often referred to as a heart-lung machine or “pump”, maintains the circulation of blood and oxygen content to the body.
