Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Mitral valve surgeries have been performed traditionally by median sternotomy. However, over the past two decades, minimally invasive mitral valve surgery has evolved as an important option for cardiac surgeons. With the recent progress of robotic technology, surgeons can perform keyhole surgery with full wrist-like articulations. With advances in visualization, instrument ergonomics, and ease of use by the surgical staff, robotic cardiac surgery is becoming more and more standardized and the application in cardiac surgery has been growing.
