For Mitral Valve Surgery, Mini-Thoracotomy May Trump Robotic Approach
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/chf/73579

Jun 19th, 2018 - In trying to avoid the full sternotomy of conventional mitral valve surgery, a minimally-invasive approach may be better than robot-assisted one in some respects, according to a retrospective study. While both less-invasive procedures had a 0.7% r...
