Direct Cannulation in Minimally Invasive Cardiac surgery with limited resources
ConclusionsIn our experience, this approach is a reliable platform for a variety of MICS procedures and has resulted in low complication rates. The technique can be applied safely to both paediatric and adult population. Also, it is very cost effective as regular instruments and cannulas are used.

Complete Sternal-Sparing HeartMate 3 Implantation: A Case Series of 10 Consecutive Patients
ConclusionsOur early outcomes suggest that the CSS approach may reduce the incidence of right ventricular failure, bleeding, intubation time, and intensive care unit length of stay. Further studies are needed to fully elucidate the advantages of CSS LVAD implantation compared with median sternotomy.

Surgical repair of distal aortic arch aneurysm with distal extension: sternotomy versus thoracotomy
ConclusionsThe sternotomy approach showed better outcomes in terms of operative mortality, stroke, and pneumonia, as well as long-term survival compared to thoractomy. These results suggested that the sternotomy approach was more appropriate for patients with distal aortic arch aneurysms with distal extensions.

Complete sternal-sparing HeartMate 3 implantation: a case series of ten consecutive patients
ConclusionsOur early outcomes suggest that the CSS approach may reduce the incidence of right ventricular failure, bleeding, intubation time and ICU length of stay. Further studies are needed to fully elucidate the advantages of CSS LVAD implantation compared with median sternotomy.

Minimally Invasive Approaches to Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement: A Meta-Analysis
ConclusionsMinimally invasive approaches to AVR yield excellent outcomes in high volume centers. They reduce hospital stay and incidence of post-operative atrial fibrillation, and, therefore, should be considered in patients undergoing AVR. However, the operative approach should be selected according to surgeon’s technical expertise and what is best for specific patient profile.

Robotic Total Arterial Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting: Seven-Year Single-Center Experience and Long-Term Follow-Up of Graft Patency
Conclusions Robotic off-pump CABG using IMA grafts is a safe and effective procedure in selected patients. The long-term outcome and patency of IMA grafts are excellent.

Does Thoracoscopic Surgery Decrease the Morbidity of Combined Lung and Chest Wall Resection?
Conclusions Thoracoscopic chest wall resection was feasible, expanded our case selection, and reduced prosthetic reconstruction. It did not, however, protect frail, elderly patients reliably. Briefer, less traumatic operations may be needed for this cohort.
