Abstract

Patients in extremis following penetrating cardiac injury must be rapidly and effectively resuscitated. Treatment priorities are relief of tamponade with control of hemorrhage. Rapid closure of cardiac wounds is necessary to achieve hemostasis and preservation of cardiac function. A simple and rapid technique of emergency cardiorrhaphy is described utilizing the the skin stapling device.
