This is a simple and quick method for the tightening of figure-of-eight wires routinely used for sternal closure. This technique gives a stable approximation, adequate reduction, and immobilization, providing higher strength and rigidity compared with conventional figure-of-eight closure. The advantage of this technique is that it tightens all the four wires equally, thus avoiding loose loops.

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 April 2017.
All research outputs
of 13,018,224 outputs
Outputs from Innovations: Technology and Techniques in Cardiothoracis and vascular Surgery
of 289 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 263,886 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Innovations: Technology and Techniques in Cardiothoracis and vascular Surgery
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,018,224 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 83rd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 289 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 263,886 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
