    It's when the sternum is split to access the chest.

    It's when they cut down the center of your chest, usually for a CABG or a coronary artery bypass graft. They open your heart and take a small artery from somewhere on your body and place it so it let's blood go around a blocked artery. It's for people who have had heart attacks.

    Nor "have",  its "do", its an emergency cutting down the center of the sternum to get into the chest cavity.
