Minimally Invasive Port Access Approach for Reoperations on the Mitral Valve
This retrospective review compared outcomes for re-do minimally invasive mitral valve operations vs re-do sternotomy in mitral valve operations. The authors demonstrate a similar MV-repair rate in the two groups but a significantly lower bypass and cross-clamp time in the minimally invasive group. Working within the confines of a retrospective study the authors have produced a very interesting paper.
