BACKGROUND: To review the results of minimally invasive aortic valve replacement (AVR) through a right anterior minithoracotomy
METHODS: From July 2011 to January 2018, a total of 84 patients with isolated aortic valve disease (rheumatic in 62 patients, degenerative in 14 patients, congenital in 8 patients) underwent AVR through a right anterior minithoracotomy approach in the third intercostal space with a groin for femoral cannulation.
RESULTS: The mean age was 41.4 years (ranging from 19 to 74 years). 58 patients were male. Mean duration of cardiopulmonary bypass time and aortic cross-clamp time was (82 23) minutes and (53 16) minutes, respectively. 2 patients required conversion to median sternotomy. Follow-up was per incision formed in all patients for a period of 15 6 months postoperatively. A good recovery was obtained in all patients.
CONCLUSIONS:Minimally invasive aortic valve replacement though the right anterior minithoracotomy approach is safe and feasible with reduced postoperative recovery time.
