Rigid plate fixation of the sternum (RPF) is a quickly expanding market due to its efficacy in post-surgical outcomes. There have been a multitude of studies on the effectiveness of rigid plate fixation compared to traditional cable and wire fixation, post open sternum procedures such as Coronary Bypass surgery and surgical Sternotomies. Until now, RPF has been cost prohibitive and typically only utilized in difficult to treat cases. There is a significant opportunity for low-cost RFP devices in the US and hospitals and surgeons are realizing the value of RPF due to superior clinical outcomes and decreased patient revisions which is far more costly to the hospitals.
