Abstract

A complete sternal cleft is a very rare congenital anomaly causing severe respiratory compromise. Surgical reconstruction options are limited, particularly in low birth weight newborns. Herein, we report a case of low birth weight premature newborn with a complete sternal cleft and its surgical treatment.
