Evaluating Short-Term Postoperative Outcomes in Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery for Patients with Rheumatic Disease
Keywords:minimally invasive mitral valve surgery, rheumatic heart disease, mitral valve stenosis, mitral valve replacement, mitral valve repair
Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (MIMVS) is widespread and has become a standard procedure in cardiac surgery [Chitwood 1997; Carpentier 1996]. Therefore, MIMVS is a common procedure for patients with degenerative disease [Raanani 2010; Iribarne 2010] as well. However, the safety of MIMVS in patients with rheumatic heart disease (RHD) has not thoroughly been investigated, due to the low prevalence of RHD in developed countries, where MIMVS is standardized [Miceli 2015]. Here, we investigated the safety of MIMVS for patients with RHD at Lampang Hospital in Thailand.
