Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery


Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery is performed through a 4-5 cm incision in the patient's right chest without cutting open the sternum (breastbone). This technique can be used for:

  • simple and complex mitral valve repairs,
  • mitral valve replacement,
  • redo-mitral valve surgery,
  • combined procedures such as tricuspid valve repair, atrial septum defect closure and atrial fibrillation ablation.

Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery  
 

Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (MI-CABG)


Single, double, and triple vessel coronary artery disease can be treated with minimally invasive coronary artery bypass graft surgery. This procedure is performed through a 5-7 cm incision in the patient's left chest:

  • without cutting open sternum,
  • without the use of the heart-lung machine,
  • with multiple or all arterial grafts for long-term durability.

Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Surgery


Minimally invasive aortic valve surgery is performed through a 4-5 cm incision in the patient's right chest without cutting open the sternum (breastbone), or a 6-7 cm incision in the middle of the chest, opening only part of the sternum. This technique can be used for:

  • aortic valve repair or replacement,
  • aortic root replacement,
  • aortic valve sparing operation,
  • redo-aortic valve replacement.
 
 

Minimally Invasive Aortic Surgery  
 

Minimally Invasive Aortic Surgery


Elective aortic operations for treating aneurysms in the ascending aorta and aortic arch can be treated with minimally invasive aortic surgery. These procedures are performed through a 6-7 cm incision in the middle of the chest, opening part of the sternum.


Miscellaneous surgeries


Minimally invasive surgery may also be appropriate for:

  • tricuspid valve repair or replacement,
  • atrial septal defect closure,
  • excision of left and right atrial myxomas,
  • ablation for atrial fibrillation.
