Case description

Minimally invasive mitral valve replacement is a surgical procedure aimed at treating mitral valve disease while minimizing trauma to the patient's chest and body. Unlike traditional open-heart surgery, which requires a large incision in the chest, minimal invasive mitral valve replacement involves smaller incisions, often made between the ribs or through the sternum. This approach reduces pain, blood loss, and recovery time compared to open-heart surgery, allowing patients to return to normal activities sooner. During the procedure, the damaged mitral valve is replaced with a prosthetic valve, restoring proper blood flow and function to the heart. While not suitable for all patients or every case of mitral valve disease, minimal invasive mitral valve replacement offers a promising alternative for eligible candidates seeking a less invasive approach to cardiac surgery.
