The objective of our retrospective observational study is to assess the results of cardiac reoperations in patients with mitral valve disease approached trough a 5-7 cm right mini-thoracotomy.METHODS: From February 2017 to December 2019, 65 patients underwent re-operative mitral valve surgery in our institution. Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) was started by cannulation of the femoral and jugular vein and femoral artery or alternatively right axillary artery. Patients enrolled had a mean age of 66.6±11.5 years. Patients were divided into three groups based on the procedure adopted: external aortic cross-clamp (EAC), En...
