Abstract

An alternative approach to minimally invasive mitral valve surgery is described that permits direct great vessel cannulation and direct aortic clamp occlusion through a 6- to 8-cm incision. This approach reduces the complexity of the procedure, and hopefully, will contribute to more widespread adoption of less invasive techniques in mitral valve surgery.
