This video shows the minimally invasive repair of a complex set of lesions of the mitral valve from healed endocarditis with anterior and posterior flails with A2 perforation.
January 22, 2020
In this video, the authors describe mitral valve pathologies that are solved or repaired through a minimally invasive approach.
December 18, 2019
The authors present a framework of technical considerations that can help surgical teams achieve reproducible success with this technique of the reconstruction of the intervalvular fibrous body, decreasing the technical failures.

This single institution study spanning a decade of experience identified a 6.5% rate of mortality, which was related to active endocarditis at the time of surgery, the need for preoperative ventilation, longer bypass times, and increasing European risk score.

This video demonstrates the technique of the "Commando procedure" to treat invasive double valve endocarditis that involves the aortomitral fibrous body.
March 29, 2019
In this video, the authors share the approach they use to treat patients requiring Bentall surgery for infective endocarditis: a subannular implantation technique and the use of a 100% pericardial valved conduit.

This video shows a complex mitral valve repair using a modification of the Leipzig loop technique with a modular Gore-Tex neochord system to address the anterior and the posterior leaflet.

The authors demonstrate how to use one homograft root in reoperative infected aortic root/hemiarch reconstruction with the use of a handmade bovine pericardial aortic tube to replace the ascending aorta and unite the divided homograft.
