Minimally Invasive Heart Valve Surgery: How and Why in 2012.

Summary of "Minimally Invasive Heart Valve Surgery: How and Why in 2012."

Cardiac surgical procedures via traditional sternotomy are safe and effective operations performed by cardiothoracic surgeons worldwide. However, postoperative limitations in upper extremity activity during bone healing are seen as undesirable by some. Percutaneous catheter-based attempts to emulate the outcomes of traditional cardiac surgical procedures have largely fallen short of established standards of efficacy and durability. The field of minimally invasive heart valve surgery thus developed out of a need to offer smaller, better-tolerated incisions to patients while maintaining high-quality clinical outcomes. These operations are safe and effective when performed by proficient surgical teams, allowing patients to resume normal activities more rapidly. We explore current evidence supporting the practice of minimally invasive heart valve surgery in 2012 and analyze the clinical impact of these nascent surgical platforms.

Outcomes of Minimally Invasive Valve Surgery in Patients with Multiple Previous Cardiac Operations.

The study aim was to evaluate the outcomes of minimally invasive valve surgery, performed via a right anterior thoracotomy approach, in patients with a history of multiple (more than two) prior cardia...

Traditional Sternotomy Versus Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Replacement in Patients Stratified by Ejection Fraction.

Low ejection fraction (EF < 40%) portends adverse outcomes in patients undergoing valvular heart surgery. The role of traditional median sternotomy aortic valve replacement (SAVR) compared with minima...

Pain and the Quality of Life Following Robotic Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Minimally invasive bypass grafting is a promising surgical treatment in proximal LAD stenosis procedures. The main goal of this study was to make comparisons between robotically assisted minimally inv...

Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery through a right mini-thoracotomy.

Since its introduction in the mid-1990s, minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (MIMVS) has been shown to be a feasible alternative to a conventional full-sternotomy approach, and several studies hav...

Mitral valve repair and aortic valve replacement with sutureless prosthesis implantation through a right minithoracotomy.

Little experience exists in minimally invasive treatment of double-valve disease. In this report, we present a minimally invasive approach for mitral and aortic valve disease through a minithoracotomy...

Conventional Versus Mini-Sternotomy for Aortic Valve Surgery

Minimally-invasive operative techniques have been introduced in cardiac surgery. These techniques may have several advantages such as a decrease in post operative pain, lower morbidity an...

Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Hip Versus Standard Approach

The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a difference in terms of length of hospital stay and post-operative outcomes between patients whose total hip replacement surgery is p...

Comparing the Effectiveness of Repairing Versus Replacing the Heart's Mitral Valve in People With Severe Chronic Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation

People with coronary artery disease (CAD) or people who have had a heart attack may develop a leak in the mitral valve of their heart and may therefore need to undergo surgery to fix the v...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annuli of HEART VALVES. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.

A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.

A condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.

Downward displacement of any one of the HEART VALVES from its normal position. This usually results in failed valve closure.
