OBJECTIVES The present study aimed to compare the results of beating heart technique and conventional mitral valve surgery (MVS). METHODS Three hundred and nineteen patients who underwent MVS between April 2005 and December 2006 were enrolled in the study. While 125 patients underwent beating heart MVS (group 1), the conventional approach was used for 194 patients (group 2). Of those patients who underwent beating heart MVS, 75 underwent MVS without cross-clamping the aorta. Coronary sinus… 
Beating heart mitral valve surgery: results in 120 consecutive patients considered unsuitable for conventional mitral valve surgery.
Patients considered unsuitable for a conventional mitral valve operation had favourable postoperative outcomes if the operation was performed on the beating heart.
These findings were the basis for using beating heart technique for mitral valve replacement, Aortic cross-clamping, Cardioplegia, and reperfusion injury leads to myocardial ischemia and is a critical issue in mitral valves surgery despite novel approaches to my cardiac protection.
Efficacy and Safety of Beating Heart Mitral Valve Replacement
Beating heart mitral valve replacement is equally safe as the arrested heart technique and is recommended as an appropriate alternative to the arrestedHeart technique for mitral valves replacement.
Right thoracotomy for redo mitral valve surgery with perfused heart on ventricular fibrillation.
It is concluded that beating-heart MVS can be performed successfully in selected high-risk patients in particular which will lead to increased morbidity and mortality in the postoperative period and some level of heterogeneity of the groups variables.
Clinical and ultramicroscopic myocardial randomized study of beating versus arrested heart for mitral surgery.
Myocardial protection and ultrastructural abnormalities were similar for both types of mitral valve replacement beating or arrested heart techniques.
Leakage test during mitral valve repair
Intraoperative assessment of a competency of the repaired mitral valve before closure of the atrium is an important step in accomplishing successfulMitral valve repair.
Beating heart valve surgery with lung perfusion/ventilation during cardiopulmonary bypass: do we need to break the limits?
Preliminary clinical results are presented, as well as basic and clinical evidence, indications, contraindications and limitations of these new evolving techniques.
The Egyptian Cardiothoracic Surgeon
A patient with sickle cell anemia who had bicuspid aortic valve stenosis and aneurysmal dilatation of the ascending aorta complicated with infective endocarditis is described.
Practical conduct of open heart procedures for congenital heart lesions.
Familiarity with the principles of CPB, check lists and protocols go a long way in improving outcome in this critical group of patients.


Redo valve surgery with on-pump beating heart technique.
Normothermic on-pump beating heart valve replacement offers a safe alternative to cardioplegic arrest in high-risk group and perioperative mortality is lower than with conventional surgery.
On‐Pump Beating Heart Mitral Valve Surgery without Cross‐Clamping the Aorta
In this study, it is shown that on‐pump beating heart operations without cross‐clamping is an acceptable surgical choice for mitral valve disease and perioperative mortality is lower than that generally reported with conventional technique.
Mitral valve repair or replacement on the beating heart.
The main advantages of beating heart surgery are: 1) the perfused myocardial muscle, 2) the heart not doing any work, 3) no reperfusion injury, 4) the possibility for ablation of atrial fibrillation on the beating heart, and 5) testing of the mitral valve repair is done in real physiologic conditions in the state of left ventricle beating tonus.

Beating-heart mitral valve surgery is an option for myocardial protection in patients undergoing mitral valves surgery via trans-septal approach due to reduced aortic insufficiency and improved visualization of the mitral apparatus.
Immediate and long-term results of mitral prosthetic replacement using a right thoracotomy beating heart technique.
Neurocognitive Functions after Beating Heart Mitral Valve Replacement without Cross‐Clamping the Aorta
The technique of mitral valve replacement with normothermic cardiopulmonary bypass without cross‐clamping of the aorta may be safely used for majority of patients requiring mitral valves replacement without causing deterioration in neurocognitive functions.
