Robotic Repair of Mitral Endocarditis With Preoperative Neurologic Embolic Events
This video shows a complex mitral valve repair performed for active endocarditis with persistent bacteremia, fevers, and embolic neurologic events. The patient underwent a robotic-assisted repair with the excision of several vegetations, and then subsequent leaflet plasty and pericardial leaflet patch repair. The patient had an uneventful post-operative recovery with no recurrent neurologic events and resolution of the endocarditis.
