Abstract

Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Replacement is not just a metric of the incision, but rather a holistic approach to minimize the surgical trauma: the technique should reproduce the gold-standard conventional procedure in terms of safety, effectiveness and operative times through a small and different incision. Moreover, the procedure should be simple and reproducible in every Center all over the world. In our experience, we rely more on surgical skills and technique optimization, rather than CT-scan planning: definitely, the pre-operative imaging is helpful in the beginning of the experience to rule out difficult cases.
