An endoscopic pulmonary valve replacement (setup, procedure, tips and tricks, voice-over)
Management of a denuded posterior mitral valve annulus during decalcification for mitral annular calcification or debridement of an abscess can be challenging. This video shows the successful technique to use the anterior mitral valve leaflet as a posterior annular patch
Endoscopic tricuspid valve replacement for carcinoid disease
Dr Solinas and team show an elegant way of dealing with anterior leaflet prolapse using a ChordX system made by Artivion
Dr Hinna Danesi shows a clever technique of getting a tissue valve through a tight rib space in an Endoscopic procedure
Severe Mitral annular calcification is traditionally a contraindication to an endoscopic approach. Dr Castillo-Sang, from Saint Elizabeth Healthcare in Edgewood, Kentucky USA, uses a Cavitron device to decalcify and insert an artificial valve very elegantly
Totally endoscopic approach through a periareolar working incision, offers exceptional views of all types of atrial septal defects (thus facilitating the repair) and also increased patient satisfaction (scarless cardiac surgery).
The team in Berlin presents a case of Endoscopic re-do Tricuspid Valve Repair
Concomitant treatment (in conjunction with other cardiac surgery) of persistent atrial fibrillation (Afib) is a class I recommendation.
