Jul 10th, 2018 - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Medtronic's HeartWare ventricular assist device (HVAD) for implantation via thoracotomy in patients with advanced heart failure, the company has announced. Medtronic's HVAD System is the only ...

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...

Improving the safety and efficacy of robotically assisted mitral valve surgery
https://www.mdedge.com/ccjm/article/155111/improving-safety-and-efficacy-robotically-assisted-mitral-valve-surgery/page/0/1

Dec 1st, 2017 - After 500 cases, enough data had been collected to create an algorithm for determining which patients would be eligible for mitral valve repair via the robotic approach vs a sternotomy-based approach. Use of the algorithm ( Figure 1 ) relies on re.
