  Purpose

Pneumonia occurs frequently in patients undergoing cardiac surgery and allows to increase their mortality. While chest physical therapy plays a crucial role to prevent postoperative pneumoniae, painful mobilization of the sternum after sternotomy limits chest physical therapy. The continuous local anesthetic infusion by multiperforated catheter decreases sternum pain. Because of this optimal pain management, early chest physical therapy could be more efficient and could contribute to decrease the rate of pneumonia.

The aim of this study is to test if management of sternotomy pain using continuous local anesthetic infusion by multiperforated catheter may contribute to decrease the rate of perioperative pneumonia.
