ABSTRACT

Minimally invasive approaches to valve replacements have become increasingly common and are associated with the shorter hospitalization and reduced blood loss; although, complex surgeries with concomitant procedures are performed through sternotomy. Here we describe a right anterior mini- thoracotomy (RAMT ) approach to combined mitral valve replacement, tricuspid valve repair, and atrial septal defect closure.
