Minithoracotomy for mitral valve reparation and replacement

A surgical technique used to reach the mitral valve avoiding median sternotomy, a surgical procedure in which an incision is made in the thorax, but gaining access through a lateral minithoracotomy. It is important to highlight that in case of women an inframammary incision is made in order to provide good aesthetic results.

It is clear that this mini invasive procedure facilitates and speeds up the postoperative clinical outcomes
