Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to describe the image acquisition, identification, and reporting of postoperative adhesions in patients undergoing CT for "redo sternotomy" surgical planning. CONCLUSION. Adhesions appear as linear fibrous bands that join structures in the mediastinum viewed on static images. Confirmation by cine imaging shows deformation of mediastinal structures. Identification and reporting of adhesions will likely guide surgeons to safer interventions.
