The authors attempt to capture the main reasons why some centers are successful in embarking on an endoscopic mitral valve surgery program. The supplementary material includes videos of two alternative cross-clamping options by the authors.

In this Giants of Cardiothoracic Surgery Interview, Joel Dunning speaks with W. Randolph Chitwood Jr., the first surgeon to perform robotic mitral valve operations in the United States.
February 4, 2020
The authors present the video of a case of totally endoscopic aortic valve replacement for calcific aortic stenosis, with a conventional bovine pericardial prosthesis and transaortic mitral valve repair for secondary mitral regurgitation with the edge-to-edge technique.
January 22, 2020
In this video, the authors describe mitral valve pathologies that are solved or repaired through a minimally invasive approach.

Dr Om Prakesh Yadava and Professor Vinayak Bapat discuss transcatheter approaches and sutureless valves implanted by minimally invasive approaches.

The readmission rate after mitral valve surgery was 17% among over 75,000 patients in the National Readmissions Database. Predictors included extended initial LOS, chronic lung or renal disease, and low hospital procedural volume for mitral surgery. The mean cost of readmission was over $15,000.

In this study, the authors report on the outcome of mitral valve repair, applying subannular repair for functional mitral valve regurgitation. Included are 108 patients who underwent annuloplasty with subannular repair (n=60) versus patients with annuloplasty only (n=48).
