Abstract

The ideal standard of treatment of the infected sternotomy wound is early recognition, adequate debridement and repair with well vascularised tissue. We describe a new technique The Waist Coat Flap, which adheres to these principles, but does not require muscle or omentum and does not compromise their future use, if required. © 2004 The British Association of Plastic Surgeons.
