Abstract

Fifteen consecutive patients with membranous subaortic stenosis underwent resection by a minimal-access approach through a partial upper sternotomy using a cardioscope. There were no operative deaths and no postoperative complications. Twelve patients (80%) were extubated in the operating room. The mean hospital stay was 3.1 days, and 3 patients (20%) needed blood products. Our experience demonstrates that this modified approach is a safe and effective surgical option for resection of subaortic stenosis.
