The article presents results of numerical simulations which aimed at the assessment of different methods of sternum osteosynthesis following the sternotomy procedure. The scope of work included the development of a numerical model of the thorax of a fifty-year-old male patient on the basis of computed tomography images as well as models of three methods of sternum osteosynthesis: steel wires, plate implant "SternaLockBlu" and implant "Tritium Sternal Plate System". On the grounds of the results of the numerical simulations in the ANSYS Workbench software programme, the comparison of effectiveness of the analyzed methods was performed.
