Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery requires femoral artery cannulation for extracorporeal circulation, predominantly performed through surgical cut-down. Surgical groin incision is frequently associated with complications such as seroma and infection. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of a percutaneous plug-based large-bore vascular closure device (VCD) for femoral artery closure in minimally invasive mitral valve surgery.

There is high demand for minimally invasive mitral valve repair; however, it is unclear whether the minimally invasive approach provides the same performance of conventional sternotomy in a context of...
The development of minimally invasive mitral valve surgery has created the motivation for using this approach in young patients with chronic rheumatic valve disease. We report our recent experience wi...
We describe the case of an 81-year-old woman with three biological prostheses at the aortic valve, mitral valve, and tricuspid valve with recurrent hospitalizations due to heart failure. To the best o...
Mitral valve surgery is being performed routinely using minimally invasive operative techniques. We aimed comparing perioperative and long-term outcomes of minimally invasive mitral valve surgery usin...
Minimally invasive approach in mitral valve surgery has been applied since the late 1990s. Considerable experience of mini-thoracotomy in cardiac surgery has been gained over this period. Stages of th...
A single-center prospective study. Patients undergoing minimally invasive mitral valve surgery between February 2016 and December 2018 at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, S...
Minimally invasive transapical off-pump chordae implantation includes features such as tachycardia, arrhythmia, hemorrhage, sudden hemodynamic changes caused by the device moving in the le...
Percutaneous edge-to-edge repair of the mitral valve has been shown to be a safe and effective alternative treatment option for selected patients at high risk for cardiac surgery. Patients...
Reconstructive mitral valve surgery is increasingly done by minimal- invasive anterolateral thoracotomy technique in contrast to surgical approach by sternotomy. The minimal invasive appro...
Prospective, multi-center, Phase I study of the Evalve Cardiovascular Valve Repair System (CVRS) in the treatment of mitral valve regurgitation. Patients will undergo 30-day, 6 month, 12 ...
Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
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 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.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.
Vascular relates to blood vessels (Oxford Medical Dictionary) and can be used to describe the supply of blood, a disease affecting the blood vessels or molecules associated with these structures. For example, <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->atherosclerosis ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
