Minimally invasive cardiac surgery

Specialty of Paediatric cardiothoracic surgery

Minimally invasive cardiac surgery consists of accessing the heart from small incisions made at the intercostal level. The advantages of this type of surgery include, among others: the scar is smaller, there is a lower risk of infection and less blood loss during the intervention, shorter hospital stay and recovery time. There are several surgical procedures that can use this minimally invasive cardiac surgery, including the repair or replacement of the heart valves, the fitting of pacemaker connections, and the minimally invasive direct coronary bypass (MIDCAB), which is the performing of a coronary bypass through a small incision below the ribs.
