This video tutorial demonstrates the surgical anatomy along the extrapleural plane in the right chest, the pathological features of malignant pleural mesothelioma, and the techniques of extrapleural pneumonectomy.
Contemporary Strategies in Surgical Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation: Concomitant Ablation in Patients Without Mitral Valve Disease
May 21, 2021
It has been shown that the Cox maze procedure is safe and effective with comparable outcomes when performed concomitant to mitral valve or non-mitral valve surgery.
