Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) can be performed through a variety of approaches. Minimally-invasive CABG (MICABG) may reduce perioperative morbidity. Previous results demonstrate improved perioperative outcomes; however, adoption has been limited.

This video tutorial presents a case of robotic-assisted minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass grafting in a patient who presented with stable angina and significant stenosis of the proximal...
The left internal mammary artery is the most accepted and widely used conduit in coronary artery bypass grafting. We present a unique case of very early bifurcation of left internal mammary artery at ...
In minimally invasive mitral valve surgery, exposure in the medial left atrium is occasionally poor. We constructed a flexible exposure system for minimally invasive surgery using a tin plate (99.9% p...
The efficacy and safety of thoracoscopic atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation and minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass grafting have been previously reported. Herein, we describe the successf...
The purpose in this case was to repair a less invasive approach than a standard sternotomy. Workup of asymptomatic patient with computerized tomography scan of chest revealed pulmonary artery aneurysm...
The purpose of the study is to collect data regarding ligation of the left atrial appendage at least 12 months after surgery for patients that had exclusion of the left atrial appendage as...
Both left single lung ventilation by left double lumen tube and bilateral ventilation with selective blockage of right middle lower lobe by bronchial blocker can provide suitable surgical ...
Percutaneous coronary intervention with a sirolimus-coated stent compared to minimally invasive bypass surgery in patients with isolated proximal left anterior descending coronary arteries...
The purpose of this prospective randomized study is to compare clinical outcomes from two different patient position(prone vs left decubitus)with thoracoscopic esophageal mobilization in t...
Apply a new operation method of Left Internal Mammary Artery (LIMA)-Greater Saphenous Vein (GSV)-SCVBG to the treatment of patients with diffuse coronary artery disease,through clinical ra...
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the pulmonary veins directly to the aorta, avoiding the left atrium and the left ventricle (Dorland, 27th ed). This is a temporary procedure usually performed to assist other surgical procedures.
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 congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
