Combined Minimally Invasive Left-Sided Open Heart Surgery and Bypass Grafting Through Right Minithoracotomy
June 30, 2016
The authors performed a combined atrial myxoma resection with bypass grafting, using a right minithoracotomy approach. The case demonstrates the feasibility of combined minimally invasive heart surgery procedures (MICS).

The operating surgeons report an elderly female patient with a 7 cm ascending aorta aneurysm. The operating surgeons used a simple Dacron sleeve technique that avoided circulatory arrest and shortened the cross clamp and cardiopulmonary support time. Moreover, the single aortic suture line decreased the haemostasis problem.
