This video presents a uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery left lower posterobasal anatomic segmentectomy S10. The segmentectomy uses the inferior approach, which is less difficult technically because it avoids the fissure dissection of the bronchovascular elements. When the fissure is incomplete, this inferior approach is the best approach.

This video presents the clinical case of atrial septal defect patch repair via right axillary minithoracotomy with central cannulation for CPB and induced artificial ventricular fibrillation.

This video demonstrates how experience with routine minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting makes it possible to successfully and safely perform more complex procedures through the same incision.

Sternal dehiscence without mediastinitis is a rare and relatively benign complication after cardiac surgery. However, it may cause severe discomfort for a patient. Traditional approaches include the Robicsek technique and its modifications. In this video the authors present less invasive approach for chronic partial sternal separation using titanium implants.

This video describes one of the authors’ initial series of combined mitral and aortic valve surgery and highlights the steps involved for an endoscopic approach.

One of the main worries with aortic valve-in-valve procedures (ViV) is coronary occlusion. This is a devastating complication with a greater than 50 percent mortality rate. This video describes a surgical alternative to the interventional Basilica procedure in a high-risk patient for ViV because of a very low coronary implantation.
