Sternal Talon® | The innovative sternal closure

The open heart operation has been a success. The final step left is to close the sternum.

Sternal closure is now made easy by a new, innovative technique: Sternal Talon® from KLS Martin.

High safety for high-risk patients

KLS Martin® is driven to develop new and improved tools and techniques that benefit surgeons and patients alike. The new Sternal Talon® is the latest advancement for closing and healing the sternum following open- heart and other types of chest surgery. Designed as an alternative to wire-closure systems, it potentially offers a lower-risk, faster alternative with enhanced patient comfort and shorter healing time.

Easy to use

For years, sternal wounds have been closed using stainless steel wire. This type of non-rigid fixation is not without its complications. Sternal instability can lead to dehiscence and potentially deadly mediastinitis. Wires can also break or cut through porous bone tissue. The Sternal Talon® is an advanced system of true rigid fixation that potentially helps reduce these risks and thus enhances patient comfort and promotes return to full function.
