Minimally Invasive Concomitant Aortic And Mitral Valve Surgery - Initial Experience Of A Single Centre
Keywords:Minimally Invasive Surgery, Aortic Valve, Mitral Valve, Thoracotomy
Introduction: Valve surgery through a median sternotomy has been the standard approach, but in the past decade various minimally invasive procedures have gained increasing traction among physicians and patients.
Materials and Methods: We present a series of three patients submitted to minimally invasive combined aortic and mitral valve surgery, performed through right lateral thoracotomy.
Results: We report no postoperative complication or mortality. Mean length of stay was 5 days, with a self-reported pain score 2/5 (mild/annoying pain).
Conclusions: We report our initial experience, describing surgical technique and postoperative results, showing this technique to be safe, reproductible and comparable to conventional surgery.
