In this article, the authors demonstrate a novel technique of antegrade cardioplegia decannulation using the Cor-Knot system with phenomenal video and description on their case series. This technique has great utility in cases where closing the cardioplegia cannulation site can be challenging in minimally invasive video-assisted cardiac surgery.

Outcomes of robotic vs nonrobotic cardiac surgery were evaluated using 1:2 propensity score matching of patients in the Nationwide Inpatient Sample. Operations included valves/septae (10%), coronary arteries (47%), and other. Mean costs were 7.5% higher for robotic cases. Robotic procedures had shorter length of stay (5 vs 6 days), lower mortality
