Abstract [en]

Vacuum-assisted closure therapy is a recently introduced technique for treatment of deep sternal wound infections after cardiac surgery. We present five cases of vacuumassisted closure therapy-related major bleeding complications due to rupture of the right ventricle. This potentially lethal complication may be avoided by covering the heart with protective layers of paraffin gauze dressings.
