Abstract

The superior approach to the mitral valve through the dome of the left atrium was used for division of a left free wall anomalous pathway. It has been the approach of choice for mitral valve operations at our institution for the past 15 years, facilitating operations particularly when the left atrium is normal in size. Other approaches to the mitral valve are discussed.
