Having gone through the joys of open heart surgery I feel a rush of thanksgiving that the medical geniuses have found a way to knit the breastbone back together without that wire mesh and the long healing time.
Kryptonite is a super-glue adhesive that rapidly bonds to bone and accelerates the recovery process.
“We can now heal the breastbone in hours instead of weeks after open-heart surgery,” said Dr. Paul Fedak, a cardiac surgeon and scientist at the University of Calgary. “Patients can make a full recovery after surgery and get back to full physical activities in days instead of months.”
The story is here.
