Description: This stock medical exhibit depicts the proper exposure of the heart during repeat sternotomy. An oscillating saw is used to cut through only the outer table of the sternum. As bone hooks are used to lift and retract the sternum, an index finger is used for blunt dissection. Curved mayo scissors are used to cut through the inner table of the sternum. Rake retractors are used to retract the sternum and the heart is exposed.
