Robotic total endoscopic sutureless aortic valve replacement: proof of concept for a future surgical setting.


BACKGROUND Sutureless valves have recently enabled closed chest aortic valve replacement. This paper evaluates the feasibility of a robotic telemanipulation during thoracoscopic sutureless aortic valve implantation in cadavers. METHODS Cadavers were prepared with a five thoracosopic trocar setting, with a transthoracic clamp inserted in the first right… (More)
