Internet Video of the Week : Robotic atrial septal defect closure.
This study demonstrates the basic concepts and technique of totally endoscopic robotic ASD closure. The operation can be performed for secundum or sinus venosus type ASDs and can be combined with right-sided robotic operations including mitral or tricuspid valve pathologies. In the short video clips, authors describe the step-step approach to ASD closure. They applied this technique, using Da Vinci system, in 20 patients without mortality or complications.
