Project: Prevention of sternum instability after hear surgery using a newly developed Thorax Support System

"The Staff in the 1st Surgical Departement of the heart center Hietzing, Vienna and our patients experience daily the extraordinary effects of this product. Since we treat all patients with Posthorax sternum vest it is a win for all - we highly recommend Posthorax to every heart center.

Dr. Wagner"Correct application and stringent useof the Posthorax® vest as a single patient product provides highly significant results preventing dWHC whereas dWHC 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 wounds infections and mediastinitis.

Hospital"We have used the vest for more than 6 months in more than 500 patients. We are very pleased with the result. In these 500 patients we have 2 cases of mediastinitis.

"After 3 months we evaluated the vest, we called around 200 patients 4 weeks after surgery. More than 80% were satisfied and felt secure and comfortable with the vest.

"What we have been seeing is that they mobilized better and earlier according with the physiotherapist.

Hospital visits"Hi,
Yesterday I received the PRO vest. It's great, much better than the one they had in the hospital. My father can breath normally, and he doesn't feel such big pain. Thank you very much also for the fastest delivery I've ever seen. Regards from Poland.
